DUISBURG, Germany, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- A young boy in Germany learned of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror plot two days before the two planes hit the World Trade Center, but his warnings were not believed.
The 5-year-old on Sept. 10, 2001, even warned his kindergarten teacher, but the woman thought the boy had watched "too much television" over the weekend, and did not inform her superiors and police until after the attack had happened, German radio station WDR reported.
The kid, a young Muslim, on Sept. 9 had overheard a conversation in a mosque near Duisburg, western Germany, during which a group of men talked about the attack in detail, WDR said.
A day later, he told his kindergarten teacher that "planes will fly into large buildings and kill many people."
Apparently, a group of men in Duisburg was in constant contact with the terror cell of Mohammed Atta in Hamburg.
German police questioned the kindergarten teacher only a year later, and the father of the boy only four years after the attack, despite the fact his calling card had been found in the apartment of the Hamburg terror cell.
German officials said they knew of the group of men; they did not comment, however, whether they would be suspected in connection with the attacks.
