German police say they are responding to possible 'threat' at synagogue
Police gave no further details about the threat or their response, but local media reported that large numbers of armed police were at the town's synagogue on Thursday evening, which coincides with the Jewish festival of Yom Kippur, when observant Jews hold overnight vigils in synagogues.
