    Germany - Restaurant explosion in Ansbach, 24 July 2016

    "An explosion at a restaurant has killed at least one person and injured several others in the German city of Ansbach, near Nuremberg.

    The town's mayor has now said the blast was caused by an explosive device, and was not an accidental gas explosion as earlier reports suggested.


    The explosion took place at around 10pm at a restaurant in the city centre and one person has been confirmed dead, with at least 11 more injured.

    Early local media reports had suggested the explosion was caused by a gas leak - however the town's mayor has now said it was a deliberate act.

    A nearby music festival has now been cancelled as Germany remains on high alert in the wake of a series of incidents in recent days.

    at this rate, German attacks will need its own sub-forum. It's a shame, because we want desperately to go back to Bavaria, but are not ready to spend a holiday on edge, instead of enjoying it. I feel terrible for the German people, and what is happening to them now. Especially, after all the hospitality they have offered as a whole.

    Because German Chancellor Merkel is evil, and a fool.
    She opened the borders to EVERYONE, checked NO ONE and they all came, in large groups of young men.

    Unconfirmed reports on social media claimed a man with a backpack was denied entry to the festival just moments before the blast.

    So...sounds like he planned to set off the explosion at the concert, killing a large number of people who were having fun on a summer night. That didn't work, so he headed to the wine bar.

    Small. Friendly. Lots of young people.


    On Twitter is said that security turned the man away because he did not allow them to look in his backpack.

    Good news. Now to pray the injured recover. Would be nice for there to be an incident of this nature where only the perpetrator dies.
