Target Vienna?: (click on link for picture)
I'm not real sure what to make of this, but the following image was uploaded yesterday to an FTP server used by Al Qaida supporters from Europe.
This is an underground parking garage [tiefgarage] in the center of Vienna in the immediate vicinity of the Vienna State Opera House, the Grand Hotel and numerous other tourist attractions. We don't have enough information yet about the file, who posted it, who is linking to it, etc., to be able to accurately assess whether this is a potential target, and if so, how great and imminent a threat it is. However, in light of what is above the tiefgarage...
...it seems best to post this and err on the side of caution. [The arrow in the photo above indicates an entrance to the underground garage.]
Thanks to Rosh Gadol for help with this report, and to B-52 for noticing the map on the ftp server.
