Unconfirmed reports on local social media suggest a man wearing a backpack had been turned away from the entrance [to the music festival] moments before the blast.

The music festival has been shut down and its 2500 participants evacuated.

Good... but it's too bad other people got hurt.
Angela Merkel should be charged as an accomplice for every single person harmed or killed by an immigrant.

"According to current results of the investigation, the man killed [by the explosion] was a 27-year-old Syrian, who arrived in Germany two years ago and sought asylum. He was denied asylum a year ago," Herrmann said at a press conference, as quoted by the Nordbayern media outlet.

Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has appeared in an audio interview calling on fighters to take Western hostages and exchange them for jailed jihadists, the monitoring service SITE Intelligence Group said on Sunday.

In recording posted online, Al-Zawahiri called on the global militant network to kidnap Westerners "until they liberate the last Muslim male prisoner and last Muslim female prisoner in the prisons of the Crusaders, apostates, and enemies of Islam," according to SITE.

I'm going out on a limb now ...

The major terror attacks in Europe happened in Paris, Nice (France) and Brussel (Belgium). Some authors tried to read the locations of the attacks as a clue; they interpreted these attacks as a blackmail against the national elite of France. Brussel is a somewhat special case because it's the location of both the EU headquarter and NATO headquarter.

On the other hand, Germany was more or less spared from terror attacks until a short time ago. But now we have seen three attacks of a minor scale in a row - Wuerzburg, Munich and Ansbach. These attacks happened within one week, and all of them were located in the federal state of Bavaria. My conjecture is that these attacks are some kind of blackmail against a central figure of the German government - but I've lost track here. Schauble came to my mind, because he is the German Finance Minister and he seems to represent the typical Bavarian mindset, but his 'home base' is Baden, not Bavaria.
