Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
German original here. It's very short - only 6 grafs - and MoA got the money graf. Dateline is 29 Sept.

The sources cited are vague: "research by this newspaper"; "eyewitnesses"; and the aforementioned doctor. The report places the camps "in the vicinity of the localities Kohat, Miran Shah and Wana in the western Pakistani region [sic] of North Wasiristan and Banu".

No other German outlet has picked it up either (of course, today it's all Schumi). And the Neue Osnabrücker is not the sort of newpaper from which one would normally expect foreign investigative journalism.

On the other hand, I think most of us will pretty much agree on the fundamental plausibility of such a claim.

I dunno.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
