A Syrian man, 27, who had been refused asylum in Germany, killed himself on Sunday with a bomb he set off near a music festival in Ansbach, Bavaria, in southern Germany. This is the fourth violent attack by Muslims in southern Germany in less than a week. According to police, 12 people were injured in the explosion, three seriously. According to state officials, the man had been denied entry to the music festival just before the explosion.

The Syrian man was carrying a backpack filled with explosives and metal parts, in what officials are saying could have been an ISIS-inspired attack. Officials also said the man had arrived in Germany two years ago and this was his third suicide attempt.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann told reporters early Monday that it was not yet certain whether the man had planned to “take others with him into death.”

Police evacuated more than 2,000 people from the festival after the explosion, and cordoned off a large area around the explosion site.

According to Reuters, citing a US intelligence official (The US maintains an Army base in Ansbach), investigators are focusing on the bomber’s history before he left Syria, the reasons he was denied asylum, and why he blew himself up — was it personal, political, religious, or all three.

Last week an Afghan refugee used an axe and a knife to injured a family of four on a train in southern Germany before being shot dead by police. On Friday, nine people were killed and more than 20 injured by an Iranian in Munich, also in southern Germany. Earlier on Sunday, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested after killing a pregnant woman and wounding two people with a machete in the southwestern city of Reutlingen, near Stuttgart.

  1. I have no sad feelings whatsoever for the Germans. Please, I beg you. My fellow jews,, don't forget even for a moment what their cruel father's did to our families, how obscene and sick were their methods of torture and extermination upon us.

  2. I feel sorry for the poor innocent Germans killed by the barbarians.Electing a world globalist Merkel is the German peoples fault. They have to start treating the barbarians for what they are.They are now on the frontline of terrorism like Israel. The German press lies to the people saying the attacks are not related to islamo facism.They lie like the hypocritcal New York Times.

  3. Absoslutely right Roc Diaz. In WW11 they thought Hitler was their Messiah and murdered 0ver 8,000,000 Jews plus 7,000,000 infirm,protestants', Gypsys and only G-d knows the amount. Germany, you are reaping what you sewed. I do not pity you, France, UK and all of the other G-dless countries. You have made Europe a Islamic Caliphate. You deserve what you get. I wonder if the whole area of Europe will be renamed EUROPASTAN! May the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob(Israel) bless His chosen people, the Jews.
