This is strange. A few sites (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4) are reporting that German police intercepted American agents trying to smuggle C4 explosive into the G8 conference at Heiligendamm. No coverage of this by MSM at the moment.

Sources told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa that US security men tested German security by trying to smuggle C4 plastic explosive past a checkpoint at Heiligendamm.

German surveillance machinery detected the tiny stash in a suitcase in a car and the Americans in plainclothes then identified themselves. German police declined comment.

I wonder who the ‘sources’ were who reported it to DPA? And why would German police decline comment? If the story was untrue, surely they would just say so? I’m going to ping a few friends in Germany to see if it’s getting much coverage over there.
