SkyNews writes about it.
Police officials in Vienna have confirmed there will be more armed police on the streets of the capital after intelligence suggested Islamists were planning a terrorist attack on churches.
“There is a non-specific threat of attacks on churches,” police in the Austrian capital tweeted.
“If there is a specific danger to the population in a specific location, the Vienna police will immediately alert all available channels,” the police said.
Austrian intelligence received information that “an attack with an Islamist motive is planned.”
“Armed police officers in bulletproof vests and helmets will be more visible and will also check traffic,” a police spokesman said.
A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Vienna said churches would remain open “for now” as police told them it was a “general threat” and “there is no immediate danger to Catholics.”
Recall that in Germany, a man took people hostage in a pharmacy, the police stormed the attacker.
