A murky plot to extort money from delivery giant DHL Express has many Germans on edge during the busy holiday shipping season.On Monday, a package delivered by DHL to the Thuringia state governor's office and at first feared to be bearing a hand grenade brought police out to investigate.The online message outlining the DHL extortion demand mentioned a similar package that was sent to an online company in Frankfurt an der Oder at the beginning of November and had started burning when it was opened, prosecutors said.DHL, a division of Deutsche Post DHL, has refused to comment on the case.Last month, the company said it expected to handle 8.5 million daily deliveries in Germany during the holidays, double the number it usually makes.
