( dpa ) - Germany's federal criminal police (BKA) said Friday they saw an increased risk of terrorist attack following the publication on the internet of the controversial anti-Islam film by Dutch maverick politician Geert Wilders.
The head of the state protection division, Klaus Wittling, said the film could provide the motivation for extremists to respond.
BKA head Joerg Ziercke stressed, however, that the BKA saw no specific threat at the moment.
Aiman Mazyek, general secretary of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, called on Muslims to respond "sensibly."
"Don't overreact," he said in remarks broadcast by national commercial news broadcaster n-tv.
