Germans Killed in Afghanistan by NATO Drone Strike

But it's not what you think... these 8 were apparently Islamic militants in Pakistan for terror training.

Eight people thought to be German nationals were killed in a suspected drone strike in northwestern Pakistan, two Pakistani officials said Monday.
The strike happened in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan, the officials said.
Missiles struck a building that held the eight, who are believed to have been members of the group Jihad al Islami, the officials said.
The strike comes a day after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued a joint bulletin warning that terror attacks were being plotted against targets Europe. European intelligence officials said Monday that a group of jihadists from Germany were at the heart of the plots, but it was not immediately clear if the warning and the suspected drone strike were related.
