2 GIs Killed in Apparent Terrorist Attack at Frankfurt Airport

Two American GIs were shot to death at the Frankfurt airport today in what appears to have been an attack by Kosovo-linked terrorists. Two others were injured in the attack.

It's terrorism, I venture, because the assailant and/or assailants yelled "Allahu Akbar" ("God is Great"), which is absolutely the last thing any traveler wants to hear shouted in an airport or on a plane.

Here's a news report, which identifies the victims as "airmen," which I presume means U.S. Air Force personnel, but who can tell given the sloppiness of wire-service reporting these days.

[Update: Here's an update from CNN. The GIs apparently were stationed at Lakenheath Air Force Base, the largest U.S. Air Force base in England.]
