German police investigating ‘Islamist link’ in Borussia Dortmund bus blast – report
Police are examining a letter reportedly found at the site that claims responsibility for the series of explosions. The bombs went off near a German team bus as it transported players to a Champions League quarter-final game.
According to the German newspaper Sueddeutsche, the letter opens with; “In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful,” and also mentions the Berlin Christmas market attack.
The unsigned letter 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 nations” would be on a “death list of the Islamic state,” Sueddeutsche reports, which will apply until German Tornadoes are withdrawn and the American airbase is closed at Ramstein.
