KLM plane in German terror alert
German commandos have arrested two men on an aeroplane preparing to take off from Cologne airport.
A Somali, 23, and a Somali-born German, 24, were suspected of planning attacks and were detained after several months of surveillance, police said.
The men had intended to carry out "holy war" and suicide notes had been found at their flat, a police official told German television.
The KLM passenger carrier KL1804 had been bound for Amsterdam.
The plane was boarded by police at 0655 (0455 GMT), police spokesman Frank Scheulen told AFP news agency.
Commandos boarded the plane as it was on the "point of departure" and removed the two suspects, a KLM spokeswoman told Dutch television.
The remaining passengers were then ordered off the aircraft for a baggage inspection, she added.
The plane was cleared for departure just over an hour later and has since landed in Amsterdam.
Lucky they found the suicide notes (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)
