SOME FOOTAGE USED LEGALLY WITH FAIR USE PROTECTION. PARIS — Al Qaeda and related groups are plotting new attacks on Western European capitals, European officials said on Wednesday, but they had no actionable intelligence suggesting either the timing or specific locations. French and German officials on Wednesday played down reports of a significant new threat from the main Qaeda group hiding in Pakistan, saying that any plot appeared to be in the planning stages. One Western official familiar with the intelligence said that this plot involved small teams of gunmen equipped with small arms who hoped to mount commando-style raids in Western European capitals, which are considered softer targets than the United States. In Britain, security officials noted that the terrorist threat alert remained "severe," as it has been for months, indicating that an attack is considered "highly likely." But a senior French official said that France was on high alert because of another threat: from Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, which is linked to, but operates separately from, Al Qaeda itself.

In 2010 three cities will be named European Capitals of Culture, but it's more than just a title. Inhabitants of the culture capitals see it as an opportunity to broadcast their talents around the world. EuroparlTV went to Essen to find out what makes one worthy of the title.
Istanbul,Essen and Pecs,Hungary,have taken over the mantel of European Capitals of Culture for 2010. Since 1985 the title has been conferred to at least one city each year. Those chosen spend the year putting on a cultural extravaganza meant to highlight how special they are. In return,they draw a flood of domestic and foreign tourists.
On Saturday 9 January President Barroso took part in the kick-off celebrations of "Essen for the Ruhr" in Germany as one of the three "European Capitals of Culture" in 2010, together with Pécs in Hungary and Istanbul in Turkey. President Barroso is convinced that "without culture, Europe and its citizens would lack the inspiration, creativity and spirit of innovation they need for their common project." The grand opening of "Essen for the Ruhr" was held in the World Heritage site "Zeche Zollverein", formerly the world's largest colliery and today an impressive industrial monument and culture centre.
