In case you missed the bombing in Dortmund, and if you aren’t reading Geller Report, you missed it because the enemedia censors, whitewashes, and under reports acts of jihad terror and Islamic attacks.

Three explosive devices went off by the side of the bus carrying the German football team Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night, injuring one player.

The incident occurred in Dortmund’s Höchstem district, approximately six miles (10km) from the club’s stadium, where they were due to play a Champions League quarter-final against Monaco. Police are still investigating who was behind an attack on Borussia Dortmund’s team bus which injured Marc Bartra and caused the postponement of their Champions League match with Monaco. More here.

Police confirmed there were three explosions near the bus, breaking some of the vehicle’s windows. The defender Marc Bartra was injured by shards of glass and was taken to hospital. He was due to undergo surgery on his injured arm to repair a fracture and remove shrapnel.

Police said the explosions were a “targeted attack.”

BORUSSIA DORTMUND ATTACK: POLICE INVESTIGATE ISLAMIST LINK

BBC, April 12, 2017:

German police are investigating a possible Islamic extremist link to the bombing of the Borussia Dortmund football team’s bus, German media say.

A letter found near the scene cites the Berlin Christmas market attack and military operations in Syria. It is not yet clear if the letter is genuine.

Meanwhile German federal prosecutors, who usually lead terror investigations, are taking over the probe.

Chancellor Angela Merkel called the bombing a “revolting act”.

“The chancellor was, like the people of Dortmund and millions of people everywhere, appalled by the attack on the BVB team bus,” her spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said on Wednesday.

COMPETING CLAIMS

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper said the letter found nearby began with the phrase “in the name of Allah”, and mentioned Germany’s use of Tornado jets in the coalition forces fighting so-called Islamic State (IS).and right-wing fans. The club has clamped down on such fans in the past.

WHAT HAPPENED?

Borussia Dortmund players were on their way to their home Champions League quarter-final match against Monaco, when three explosive charges detonated, police said.

Pictures from the scene showed the bus’s windows broken and tires burst.

Player Marc Bartra underwent an operation after breaking a bone in his wrist. No other players were hurt, but a police officer on a motorbike escorting the bus was also wounded.

The head of Dortmund police said it was a targeted attack. Several reports said the explosives had been hidden in a hedge.

Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki told Swiss news outlet, Blick, that the bus had turned onto the main road when there was a loud noise.

The players ducked to the floor of the bus, not knowing if there would be more blasts, he said.

Captain Marcel Schmelzer added “we’re all in shock” but their thoughts were with their injured colleague.

Fans already at the 80,000-capacity Signal Iduna Park were told to stay there until it was safe to leave. The stadium was later evacuated safely.
