Ambulance Car Bomb Suspends Friendly International Game

In short - an ambulance rigged with explosives was found at a German-Dutch Football game. Merckle was to be there.

Germany's friendly against Holland was cancelled just 90 minutes before kick-off after a bomb truck disguised as an ambulance was discovered near the stadium in Hanover, according to reports.

Police chief Volker Kluwe said there had been 'a concrete threat scenario for all of Hanover' and that there had been 'serious plans to cause an explosion'.

He added that the the device was intended to be detonated inside the HDI Arena which has a capacity of 45,000.

'We had concrete evidence that someone wanted to set off an explosive device in the stadium,' Kluwe told German TV.

Referring to another bomb threat about an hour beforehand that turned out to be a false alarm, he said, 'After the first object turned out to be harmless, we got a tip that had to be taken seriously that an attack was being planned.'

Announcements had advised fans, most of whom were outside the ground, to leave calmly and that there was no danger.

Police had earlier sealed off the ground after finding a suitcase before allowing fans to enter.

'The visitors (spectators), who were already in the stadium at that time, were asked to leave the stadium without panicking,' police said in a brief statement.

The home team had been en route to the ground but were diverted away to an unknown location by a police escort while German Chancellor Angela Merkel had been expected to attend the match along with members of her cabinet but had not yet arrived.

'We were re-routed on our way to the stadium and are now in a safe area,' the Germany team spokesman Jens Grittner said on Twitter. 'We cannot say more at this moment.'

Two Dutch government ministers attending the match - Defence Minister Jeanine Hennes and Health and Sport Minister Edith Schippers - were returning home.

Security in the area had been very tight throughout the day, with police armed with machine guns and maintaining a very obvious presence in the city. Reporters arriving for the game were searched with a sniffer dog was deployed to check their bags.

Trains travelling away from the area were later stopped while the nearby 14,000-capacity TUI-Arena was also evacuated ahead of a concert by the pop band Sohne Mannheims but it was later confirmed that the event would go ahead.

Former Holland international Ruud Gullit tweeted: 'I am now on the stadium of #hannover for the game #germany-#holland. They just suspended the game and are going to inform us why.'

The postponement comes just four days after Germany's match against France in Paris was targeted by terrorists as part of a coordinated attack on the capital which killed 129 people. One bystander was killed and several more injured while 79,000 supporters watched the match in the ground.

Although a man wearing a suicide belt was prevented from entering the Stade de France last Friday, three explosions later took place outside the ground.

Two of the explosions were heard during the friendly which was played to a conclusion with France winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Andre-Pierre Gignac.

The contingent of 80 Germans, including players, coaches and staff, then spent the night holed up in the changing rooms of the stadium as the attacks took place across the capital, before heading for the airport on Saturday morning.

Ahead of Tuesday's match, Germany's manager Joachim Low said the fixture would serve as a message for democracy.

'It was a horrible, terrible night [on Friday], he said. 'Once we had landed back in Frankfurt, I had the feeling that the game could not take place. But having slept on it for a night, it became clear that the game had to go ahead.

'It's going to be a clear message for freedom and democracy. It is about respect and support for our French friends. If we manage to turn this game into a signal, then we will already have won, regardless of the result. We are all of the opinion that it's good that we stand by our values and that this game takes place.'

His opposite number Danny Blind added: 'I think it's a good decision not to yield to terror, but obviously we would have respected whatever decision the Germans had taken.

'I cannot even begin to imagine what was going through the German players' minds on Friday night when they hear an explosion like that during the game. It's bound to have an effect on them. Fortunately I've never experienced anything like it.'

Worse and far more horrific than the Paris attack.

Only then will the people wake from their slumber and get rid of their insane Liberal leaders.


Ya gotta get rid of moo slums.

France secret service warned Germany as they heard from intercepted phone conversations, from some north africans, about an upcoming attack at a friendly football game in Germany. Supposedly someone with a ak-47 that wanted to get inside the stadium and words heard about explosives near a stadium. They found a suspicious package at a train station which was a fake bomb but while scanning the device it looked real. German police doesn't confirm explosives were found inside that ambulance. Could have ended way worse though if they hadn't intercepted those calls.

You've outdone yourself this time Oswank, wishing death on innocent men, women and children. Oh you're a smart one you are....

Re: Ambulance Car Bomb Suspends Friendly International Game

Why are these organisations blaming the west for all the middle easts problems, I have often spoken of this but maybe not on D R . What inventions that can help mankind has this region given the world what diseases have they cured with medicine that an Arab created what advancements in technology have they brought to the table.
None of the above they need to look at themselves and their greedy over opulent sheiks to discover what's wrong in the dust bowl.....

Re: Ambulance Car Bomb Suspends Friendly International Game

Any act designed to cause terror IS terrorism, and if you're forced to change your habits for good at YOUR home, in YOUR country... then yes, they've already won. It's not a matter of how many people you kill, it's a matter of what level of terror you cause with such acts: regardless what their presidents/PM state, Europeans are now shitting their pants as everybody knows that the enemy is already here, often disguised as a man/woman fleeing from violence and begging for some help. The next target is Rome and sadly there's literally NOTHING that we can do to avoid the attack. Of course that bunch of cavemen won't conquer Europe, but they're achieving their goals, for sure.

Re: Ambulance Car Bomb Suspends Friendly International Game

It's a bit deeper then scaring some people in the west. That goes for almost all terrorist organizations.


Them scaring people is not winning, they use terrorism and fear to achieve their goals and their goals are not as simple as how many people can we scare, these are not horror movie script writers making a movie. They have political aims, military aims, prophetic aims, religious goals, the list is endless.
