German Police Investigating 'Islamist Link' in Borussia Dortmund Bus Blast
German police are investigating an “Islamist link” to the bomb attack on a Borussia Dortmund team bus, as well as an online post from an “anti-fascist” group which claims responsibility.
A number of bombs went off near a German team bus as it transported players to a Champions League quarter-final game on Tuesday night. A spokesperson for German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was “appalled” by the attack.
According to the German newspaper Sueddeutsche, it opens with: "In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful,” and also mentions the Berlin attack.
It also references Germany’s military involvement in surveillance operations against the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) as the reason for the attack, reports Reuters, citing Sueddeutsche.
It adds that athletes and other celebrities "in Germany and other Kreuzfahrer [Crusader] nations" would be on a "death list of the Islamic state" and this will apply until German Tornadoes are withdrawn and the American airbase is closed at Ramstein.
