BREAKING: Terror After BOMBS Found in Stadium

BREAKING: Terror After BOMBS Found in Stadium

A soccer match between Germany and Holland was just cancelled due to what they are now saying were explosives found in an ambulance. The terror threat has now been elevated in Hanover and people are whispering that there are bombs all over the place. That may just be panic talking, but after the Paris carnage, no one is taking any chances. The stadium has been evacuated and the authorities are saying this is the work of Islamists. A second stadium has been evacuated in Germany where there was to be a concert in Hanover, I am told.

From Young Conservatives:

The Germany vs. Holland game was cancelled just a bit ago after a strange package was located inside Hannover stadium.

Reports have been circulating that an ambulance with explosives was found outside the stadium.

The current terror threat has been expanded to the entire city of Hannover.

Here are the details.

From Mirror:

Security services told German news agency DPA the threat came from Islamists.

Hanover Police President Volker Kluwe told state broadcaster ARD that authorities had taken seriously indications of a planned attack with explosives, but did not elaborate further.

“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.

After Friday’s attacks in Paris, security measures in Hanover had been tight. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was set to attend with Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel and government ministers, in a show of solidarity with France. “We were re-routed on our way to the stadium and are now in a safe area,” German team spokesman Jens Grittner said on Twitter. “We cannot say more at this moment.”

According to kreiszeitung.de, an ambulance packed with explosives has been found outside the arena.

The paper also reports a “troublemaker” who is known to the authorities is on the pitch.

Here are a few tweets with more information:

In light of last week’s terror attacks in Paris, this is definitely alarming and is further proof that serious action against ISIS and other radical Islamic terror groups needs to be taken as soon as possible.

Hopefully this plot is fully thwarted without further incident.

We’ll keep you updated on the details as they emerger.

This comes just days after 132 were killed in Paris and over 350 were injured by ISIS. The stadium was evacuated just under 2 hours from the beginning of the match. I believe the stadium holds 80,000 people. “We had concrete evidence that someone wanted to set off an explosive device in the stadium,” Hannover police chief Volker Kluwe told German TV. Referring to another bomb threat about an hour beforehand that turned out to be a false alarm, Kluwe 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.” Investigators found a suspicious suitcase inside or near the stadium and a second suspicious device at the city’s central train station, German media and Sky News report. Police closed off part of the train station. Things are going to get very messy, very fast at this rate. Look for ISIS to really up their game now. America had better be paying attention.
