Borussia Dortmund Bombing: Iraqi, “German,” Arrested

An Iraqi invader living in Germany and a “German national” have been arrested for the Borussia Dortmund bus bombing, German police have announced.

According to reports, the two arrestees were both active in the Islamist and “anti-fascist” scene in North Rhine Westphalia.
Borussia Dortmund players were on their way to their home after a Champions League match when three bombs went off on the side of the road while the team’s bus was passing.
The Iraqi is 25 years old and lives in Wuppertal, while the “German national” is 28 years old and lives in Fröndenberg (Kreis Unna). It is at this stage unclear if the “German national” is actually a German or just another nonwhite invader who has been given German citizenship.
A spokeswoman for Germany's federal state prosecutor in Karlsruhe, Frauke Koehler, said: "Two suspects from the Islamist spectrum have become the focus of our investigation. Both of their apartments were searched, and one of the two has been detained."
Letters found at the bombing site, signed in the name of ISIS, and starting with the phrase “in the name of Allah,” demanded the withdrawal of German fighter jets from Syria and the closure of Ramstein airbase.

According to Koehler, the explosive devices were built with metal shrapnel parts, and were designed to inflict mass casualties on a crowd. The blast radius was at least 300 feet (100 meters), and it was only through sheer luck that there were no fatalities.
