 From NPR news in Washington, I'm Louise Schiavone. A jittery1 New Years Eve in many major cities around the world. In Germany, Munich police have advised on Twitter and on their website that they have credible2 information about a pending3 terror attack there. People in Munich are urged not to gather at the central train station or a second one to the west. Terror worries have led Paris and Brussels to cancel fireworks. In Dubai, it sounded like any other New Years Eve. But it was far from normal. Even as the display erupted above the city, Dubai foregathers battled a huge blaze at a luxury hotel and an apartment complex. NPR's Alice Fordham reports at least 14 people were slightly injured. One person was more seriously hurt. And one had a heart attack. The fire at The Address skyscraper4 amid hotel rooms and apartments began outside the 20th floor, according to officials. Multiple teams of firefighters worked to put the fire out. But for about an hour, the side of the 63-story building could be seen blazing and billowing huge clouds of black smog. As the firework show began that midnight, the fire had not been completely extinguished and the crowds to watch the show was smaller than had been expected. Alice Fordham, NPR news.
