Late Sunday, 11 people were injured in an explosion that blasted through a cafe in the Bavarian city of Ansbach, near Nuremberg, Germany. Police believe that the explosion was deliberate. Initially, local authorities publicly speculated that a gas cylinder may have caused the explosion, but investigators have recently confirmed that a human-operated device was responsible.
The alleged attacker was likely killed in the blast, according to police. The motive remains unknown.
“The explosion happened at about 10pm local time, at the wine bar near the entrance to an open-air music festival, with some 2,500 in attendance,” reports The Independent. “The festival was shut down as a precaution after the explosion.” All event-goers were safely evacuated by police.
This comes as Germany recovers from its most violent week in recent memory.
As The Daily Wire reported early Sunday, “a 21-year-old Syrian Muslim refugee hacked one woman to death and injured two others in a machete attack near a bus station in southern Germany.”
On Friday, an 18 year-old German-Iranian dual citizen shot and killed nine people at a McDonald’s in Munich.
One week prior, a 17-year-old Afghan refugee attacked commuters riding a train through Bavaria.
