The team bus was severely damaged in the blast, which police are treating as a terrorist attack “based on the facts of the crime,” however the exact motive remains unclear, according to a police statement.
German police say that two people suspected of involvement in Tuesday’s bombing near the Borussia Dortmund team bus have an Islamist background. The federal public prosecutor also confirmed that the explosives used contained metal shards.
Police have searched the apartments of both suspects, one of whom has been arrested, the prosecutor confirmed Wednesday. Officials are attempting to secure an arrest warrant for the second suspect.
