Germany Monitoring Increased al-Qaida Activity Online

German officials monitoring Internet traffic have seen an increase in Internet use by al-Qaida supporters:
"We have very clearly seen that al-Qaida increasingly uses the Internet for three components — a massive radicalization, recruiting and the spreading of technical information on how to carry out a terror attack, including construction of explosive devices." [Stefan] Paris [spokesman for Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble] said.

"He added that officials were also seeing a "clear focus on Germany," citing an increase in the number of German-language postings from al-Qaida over the past year."
