A mosque in Hamburg, Germany, was the original staging post for the 9/11 terror attacks. Now, nine years after al-Qaeda's carnage, the city fears Islamic jihadists are trying to make a foothold again.

"Hamburg is the center of Islamic extremism in Germany, and that concerns us most," Wolfgang Bosbach, chairman of the parliament's home affairs committee, said this week, days before the remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York.
