Borussia Dortmund football team bus hit by explosions



Three explosions have hit a bus carrying the Borussia Dortmund football team to their home Champions League quarter-final match against Monaco.
In a press conference, the head of Dortmund police said it was a targeted attack on the team.
Spain international Marc Bartra was taken to hospital with an injury to his hand. No other players were hurt.
The first indications were that this was an "attack with serious explosives", Dortmund police said.
The match was postponed until 18:45 local time (16:45 GMT) on Wednesday.
Pictures from the scene showed the bus's windows broken and tyres burst in the blasts.
Police said that "three explosive charges had detonated" at Hoechsten outside the city at about 19:00 local time.

Fans at the 80,000-capacity Signal Iduna Park were told to stay there until it was safe to leave.
The stadium was later evacuated safely and police thanked the fans for their co-operation.
Monaco fans were praised for their chants of support for Dortmund. Social media also carried offers from Dortmund residents to Monaco fans in need of a bed for the night on #bedforawayfans.
'State of shock'
Borussia Dortmund said in a statement: "Shortly after the departure of the Borussia Dortmund team bus from the hotel to the stadium there was an incident. The bus has been damaged in two places."

The Dortmund Twitter page confirmed that Bartra, a 26-year-old defender, was the player hurt, and wished him a speedy recovery.
Spain's La Marca later said Bartra had been discharged and was back at home.
Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said: "There has been an attack with explosives on the team bus.

"The whole team is in a state of shock, you can't get pictures like that out of your head."
He added: "I hope the team will be in a position to be able to compete tomorrow on the pitch. In a crisis situation like this, Borussia pulls together."
One of the Dortmund players, Mathias Ginter, was involved in the Germany-France match that was targeted in the terror attacks in Paris on 13 November, 2015. Another present in Paris, Andre Schurrle, was injured for the Monaco match.

Police are not speculating about the motives behind the attack but inside information has suggested a link between ISIS and Man City supporters Club.

German Champions League team bus hit by explosives

Borussia Dortmund explosions: Islamist suspect arrested over bus bombs as prosecutors investigate 'terrorist link'
12 APRIL 2017 • 2:48PM

An Islamist suspect has been arrested over three explosions that rocked the Borussia Dortmund football team bus, prosecutors have revealed as they confirmed the investigation was examining a possible "terrorist link".

Investigators said that two alleged Islamic extremists are the focus of the attack probe and that one has been detained following searches of their apartments.

A letter found at the scene "in the name of Allah", which claims responsibility and reportedly referred to the Berlin Christmas market attack, makes an "Islamic extremist motive possible", they confirmed.

"Two suspects from the Islamist spectrum have become the focus of our investigation, said lead prosecutor Frauke Koehle on Wednesday afternoon. "Both of their apartments were searched, and one of the two has been detained."

Three devices - which were studded with metal pins and might have been hidden in a hedge - were detonated as the Dortmund squad were travelling to the Signal Iduna Park stadium for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg.

According to German media, a letter found near the scene referred to 2016's attack on a Berlin market and began: "In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful."

The letter also named Angela Merkel and mentioned Germany's deployment of Tornado reconnaissance missions as part of an international coalition battling Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), according to local media.

Meanwhile, prosecutors have said there are "serious doubts" concerning a second letter of responsibility purported to be from an anti-fascist group.

Ms Merkel is "appalled" by the blasts, a German government spokesman said, adding that "everything possible" is being down to track down the perpetrators.

The attack left Dortmund defender Marc Bartra requiring surgery on a broken bone in his wrist after he was hurt by flying glass.

Heavy security will be in place in Germany for a rescheduled Champion League football match on Wednesday after the letter found at the scene reportedly claimed that sports stars and others "in crusader nations" are on an "Islamic State death list".

I heard on the news that a ransom note was found, basically demanding that German war planes must stop bombing Syria, or German sports people will be targeted.

So it seems.

"Ms Koehler said the letters had demanded "the withdrawal of [German] tornado fighter jets from Syria and, I quote, the closure of Ramstein airbase."
The text is being analysed to see if it is authentic.
The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper said the letter began with the phrase "in the name of Allah".

I dare say the note is being thoroughly examined to make sure it traces back to middle class Germans who the media can then blame it on Neo nastiness.

A far left group claimed something;

"Another letter was published online, in which left-wing extremist groups claimed to have carried out the attack, but the state prosecutor had reason to believe this letter was not authentic."

Borussia Dortmund attack: Iraqi suspect 'linked to IS'
The Federal Prosecutor's Office in Karlsruhe is treating the case as a "terrorist" incident

German prosecutors say they have no evidence so far linking a man held over the bomb attack against the Borussia Dortmund team bus to the crime.
But they have requested an arrest warrant to keep the 26-year-old Iraqi national in custody.

The man, identified only as Abdul Beset A, is suspected of membership in an affiliate of so-called Islamic State.
Three devices exploded on Tuesday as Borussia Dortmund footballers were travelling to a match against Monaco.

The suspect is accused of leading an IS command unit in Iraq in 2014, and of planning abductions and murder.
The German prosecutors say he travelled to Turkey, and then to Germany in early 2016, while maintaining contact with IS jihadists.

He is due to appear in court later on Thursday, and is expected to be formally arrested in connection with the bus attack.
A 28-year-old German man is also under suspicion, but has not been arrested.

The Borussia Dortmund bus attack may have been an attempt to manipulate the markets

The attack that injured one BVB Borussia Dortmund player and led to a Champions League game being postponed earlier in April looks to have been an attempt to manipulate the stock market and lead to a big profit for the alleged perpetrator.

On Friday German police arrested a man on suspicion of planting the explosives that injured Spanish defender Marc Bartra on April 11, accusing him of attempted murder, inflicting serious bodily harm and causing an explosion.

The bus of the BVB Borussia Dortmund football team was struck by three explosions. Two people were injured in the explosions: Bartra and a police officer who was near the bus at the time of the attack.

The suspect, a 28-year-old man identified as Sergei V by prosecutors, had reportedly bought options on Borussia Dortmund's stock worth roughly €78,000 (£65,000; $83,600).

The purchase of 15,000 put options — which essentially allow individuals to sell their stock at a pre-determined price — would have allowed him to make a substantial profit in the event of a big drop in Dortmund's share following the bombing.

I spotted the plot first, okay it was a German Russian who hatched the plot.
Where did he learn bomb making, and playing the stock market, the two seldom are the profile of a bomber.
Sis is a new development .

I must admit, I did think it seemed an odd target at the time, but that beggars belief.

What a fucking moron.
