“Yesterday we received very serious indications from security sources that a possible attack was planned here for today and would be carried out”. Earlier, a police spokesman told a German broadcaster that they had viewed the threat as a possible “terrorist” attack.

He would not elaborate on the details because of the ongoing investigation.

The downtown mall at Limbecker Platz square which is one of the biggest in Germany with more than 200 stores will be closed for the entire day.

In 2016, three people were injured in an attack on a Sikh temple in Essen by radicalized German-born Muslim teenagers.

Most recently, a mentally disturbed man attacked travelers with an ax at the central train station in the west German city of Dusseldorf Thursday, injuring seven people before he was captured.

Ax attacks are not unheard of in Germany. Last July, a 17-year-old Afghan refugee injured five people on a regional train in the central town of Wurzburg before he was killed by police. The refugee later claimed in a video to be acting on behalf of ISIS.

Police have also increased their presence at the city’s main train station although trains are still running.
