The Dortmund bus attack

Jack de Menezes  reports in the Independent, ‘Police have arrested a German-Russian citizen on Friday morning on suspicion of carrying out the attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus last Tuesday, with prosecutors alleging that the bombing was motivated by financial greed. The Dortmund team bus was targeted with three bombs after it left a hotel to travel to the Westfalenstadion for the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Monaco. Defender Marc Bartra and a policeman were injured in the blasts, which saw the match postponed until the next day. Investigators found a letter close to the crime scene that appeared to claim responsibility in the name of Islamic extremists, but German police doubted the authenticity of the note.’ click here.
