Germany on Thursday shut down two main train stations in Munich after receiving information about potential terrorist attacks.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann explained the decision on Friday.

"The Federal Criminal Police Office on New Year's Eve informed the Bavarian police at about 7:40 pm that there was information from a friendly intelligence agency that the Islamic State was planning an attack at midnight at Munich's main train station or in the Pasing station."

The minister said the information was "very concrete."

Munich police said the planned attack was to involve suicide bombs. Both stations have now reopened.
