A loud blast rocked Zirndorf this afternoon and local reports suggested the device was a suitcase packed with aerosol cans. Witnesses said they heard a loud bang about 200 metres away from the Muslim migration centre before finding a burning suitcase in an allotment nearby.
UK Daily Mail Police officers were seen standing in an alleyway next to a partially destroyed bag. No fatalities or injuries have been reported. Police said they were looking for two people believed to have planted the device – a man in his 30s with a ‘Mediterranean’ appearance and a woman believed to be aged about 25.
The explosion is the latest terrifying incident to hit Germany in recent days and comes barely 24 hours after a priest was brutally murdered by a pair of ISIS Muslims in northern France.
German police say they have deployed officers near a refugee accommodation center and a branch of the country’s office for asylum seekers. A statement from police said the public were never in danger but said officers were looking for two people in connection with the blast.
The explosion comes just three days after a Syrian MUSLIM asylum seeker blew himself up outside a music festival in Ansbach, also in Bavaria. Two days earlier, a MUSLIM gunman killed nine people in Munich. On July 18, an axe and knife-wielding MUSLIM migrant went on a rampage on a train in Wurzburg, seriously injuring several people.
