    "Mayor Carda Seidel confirms that explosion was caused by a device, not a gas leak."
    Jessica Saltz, France24.

    Still cannot find direct evidence of Mayor saying this. Still looking.

    Has been reported now by RT.

    Source: https://twitter.com/RT_com/status/757352978307289088

    Associated Press: no word as of yet.

    Edit: BBC now reporting it — http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36880758, https://twitter.com/BBCBreaking/stat...54191631319040

    "Die Explosion in der Ansbacher Innenstadt war keine Gasexplosion, sondern wurde durch einen Sprengkörper herbeigeführt."




    Explosives apparently.

    Some witnesses are reporting a man carrying a backpack was denied entry to the musical festival before the attack

    Sounds like the attacker panicked and went after the first busy place they could find. Very fortunate he didn't reach his intended target!

    Hey! Will get this moved ASAP as there are no N&CA mods online and these threads can get quite heated.

    This isn't really big headline news tbh... it was a small attack and the person who died was probably the attacker. I doubt this will be on the news tomorrow unless the death toll increases see which it hopefully won't.

    Yes there is, I have my metaphorical popcorn ready for what is going to happen over the next couple of years. Watching leftists trying to apologise for their actions.

    It's bad that I have to rely on Twitter to give me the news instead of official news outlets. There's literally an attack a day now. Terrible.

    It's just an accident or a fault or something, most likely. It's midnight right now in Germany- not time for an attack.
    Didn't realise jihadists had a bedtime lol
