Train stations were evacuated and people were told to avoid crowds in Munich, Germany, late Thursday after authorities received indications that a terror attack had been planned.
Munich police tweeted about an hour before New Year's Eve celebrations that "current indications" indicate a "terrorist attack is planned" in the area.

Police said that at least two train stations had been evacuated and urged the public to obey the orders of police.
The evacuations come after New Year's Eve celebrations were canceled in Brussels over concern of an imminent threat.
