Namibia Delays Air Berlin Flight to Munich Over Suspect Parcel

Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- An Air Berlin flight from Namibia to Munich in Germany was delayed for six hours yesterday after authorities in the southern African nation found a “suspicious parcel” at a luggage-screening point, the Namibia Airports Co. said.

The flight left after all of its cargo had been removed, the company said in an e-mailed statement from the capital, Windhoek.

The discovery of the parcel came after German authorities stepped up security at airports and railway stations after receiving “concrete indications” that Islamist extremists plan to stage an attack in Germany toward the end of the month.
