Four men went on trial Wednesday for allegedly plotting to attack US and German targets in central Germany - a plan foiled by authorities in 2007. German prosecutors allege the suspects planned car bomb attacks on sites such as pubs, discos and airports, and considered targets in cities including Frankfurt, Dortmund, Duesseldorf, Cologne, Stuttgart, Munich and Ramstein - where the US military has a large air base. They say the plotters hoped to kill Americans in the attacks, which were to be carried out before an October 2007 vote by the German parliament on extending German troops' stay in Afghanistan. The four suspects - two Germans and two Turkish nationals, aged 30 and under - face charges including membership in a terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit murder.
