Police Hunt Suspect of Dortmund Bus Blast

Police Hunt Suspect of Dortmund  Bus BlastPolice Hunt Suspect of Dortmund  Bus Blast

German investigators were hunting on Wednesday for possible suspects responsible for three explosions that rocked the Borussia Dortmund football team’s bus, injuring a player and a policeman. The assault, described by Dortmund city’s police chief as a “targeted attack” against the team, shook German football ahead of crucial Champions League ties, AFP reported. Investigations will focus on a letter claiming the attack, which was found close to the site of the blasts. German authorities have held off from describing it as a terror attack, saying it is too early to determine a motive. The explosives detonated minutes after the Dortmund team bus pulled away from the squad’s hotel and headed for their quarterfinal, first-leg, tie against Monaco. Spanish international Marc Bartra underwent surgery on a broken wrist after he was hit by flying glass. The injured policeman, who was on a motorcycle and had been escorting the team bus, suffered trauma from the noise of the blasts.
