DUESSELDORF, Germany - Four men accused of membership of an al Qaeda cell and charged with plotting an attack in Germany went on trial in the western city of Duesseldorf on Wednesday.

Prosecutors said the men, aged between 20 and 30, had intended to stage a "sensational terror attack", but had not decided on a specific target.

A Moroccan named as Abdeladim El-K. was the ring leader, according to prosecutors, and had trained at an al Qaeda camp in the Waziristan region of Pakistan in 2010.

He learned how to use firearms and make bombs and was ordered to build up a network for organizing attacks in Germany.
