US missile strike kills 5 German terrorists in Pakistan

BERLIN — An American missile strike killed five German militants in the rugged Pakistan border area where a cell of Germans and Britons at the heart of the U.S. terror alert for Europe — a plot US officials link to al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden — were believed to be hiding.
The attack, part of a recent spike in American drone strikes on Pakistan, came Monday as Germany said it has "concrete evidence" that at least 70 Germans have undergone paramilitary training in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and about a third have returned to Germany.
