German soccer club Borussia Dortmund’s match against Monaco was postponed yesterday after three explosive devices went off next to the Dortmund bus.  Dortmund defender Marc Bartra was injured and taken to the emergency room due to shards of glass from the windows that had fractured his wrist and left debris in his hand.  

 

In response to the explosion, Borussia Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke announced on the club’s website, “We do not just play for us today. We play for everyone – no matter whether Borussia, Bayer or Schalke supporters. We want to show that terror and hatred can never dictate our actions. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win.”

 

German media site Suddeutsche Zeitung explains that local police found a letter from those responsible for the explosion at the scene that contained the phrase, “In the name of Allah the merciful, the compassionate.”  Police are investigating whether the explosion had Islamist terrorist links.

 

The three explosives were found to be hidden in a hedge near the bus, and a fourth explosive was found undetonated near the hotel that the team was staying at.  The Dortmund vs. Monaco game has been rescheduled for today at 12:45 at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund.
