‘Suitcase bomb’ explodes near migration office outside Nuremberg as Germany remains on high alert over ISIS terrorism fears

From Daily Mail:

A suitcase bomb has exploded near a migration office on the outskirts of Nuremberg, in Germany, today.

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 migration centre before finding a burning suitcase in an allotment nearby.

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 extremists in northern France.
