Dortmund Bus Bomb Suspect ‘Wanted Money’ (Read)

Police in Germany have charged a man suspected of being behind an attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus.

Rather than having links to radical Islamism, he was a market trader hoping to make money if
the price of shares in the team fell, prosecutors say.

The 28-year-old, identified only as Sergej W, was staying in the team’s hotel in a room overlooking the street where the explosion took place.

Two people needed medical help after three bombs exploded near the bus.
Spanish footballer Marc Bartra underwent wrist surgery and a police officer was treated for shock.

Following the attack on 11 April, Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League match against Monaco was rescheduled a day later, which led Dortmund fans to open their doors to stranded away supporters.
