FRANKFURT - A German man believed to have given information to the country's intelligence services about possible terror attacks in Germany confessed in court on Thursday to being a member of al-Qaida, his lawyer said.

Prosecutors in Frankfurt accused the man, identified only as Rami M., of training in an al-Qaida camp in the western tribal regions of Pakistan, where he was arrested at a checkpoint in June last year and handed over to German officials in August.
