STUTTGART, Germany — The U.S. European Command is encouraging increased vigilance for service members traveling within Germany after some improvised explosive devices were discovered in unattended suitcases in train stations in Dortmund and Koblenz earlier this week. German authorities are currently investigating the incidents and have stepped up surveillance of train stations throughout the country.

Defense Department personnel traveling within Germany are asked to be cautious and aware of their surroundings. Travelers are encouraged to keep baggage with them, to not watch bags for strangers, and to notify authorities about unattended bags or other suspicious activities.

“Everyone should maintain awareness of their surroundings and immediately notify authorities of unattended luggage or packages,” said Army Maj. Norman Matzke, Antiterrorism Current Operations Officer for U.S. European Command. “These simple measures could spoil a potential terrorist attack.”
