Early days of course and Germany has been relatively free of terrorist activity despite many of its nationals carrying out atrocities elsewhere in the world, especially against US targets.

Yes it was but in terms of the amount of suspects in the country, they have a lower proportion of attacks or foiled attempts.

And the larger the amount of casualties is more shocking but still a lone attack as in Westminster.

It doesn''t sound too serious, and the cause is unknown at the moment.

Police said in a statement: "In the run-up to the Champions League game between BVB (Dortmund) and AS Monaco, there was just after 7pm tonight an explosion close to the BVB team bus."

"According to what we currently know, the wheels of the bus (totally or partly) burst and one person was injured.

"It is not yet possible to say exactly what the explosion was or exactly where something exploded."

How good is this, Dortmund fans offering Monaco fans beds for the night, so they can watch the rearranged game.

Absolute quality.

Soon after the match was rearranged, people in the Dortmund area offered to host Monaco fans who chose to stay in Germany for an extra night or two using the hashtag #bedforawayfans.

The biggest shock here is that Tilly hasn''t managed to find an angle where he can say/imply something negative about Ricky Martin. [:)]

A shocking incident. But a really classy response by the Dortmund fans offering Monaco supporters a place to stay for the night.

[/quote]Struggling really to think what made you post that in response to a thread about a terrible incident but anyway to answer your strange effort it looks like Webber has him sussed as well.
