A bomb attack targeting a German soccer team last week was not carried out by Islamist extremists or political activists. Officials said Friday, a 28-year-old man who wanted to make millions by causing the team’s share price to plummet carried out the bombing.
The German prosecutors office said the suspect was arrested on suspicion of detonating three bombs filled with metal pins in a hedge near the team bus of Borussia Dortmund. The team is one of Europe’s top teams.
No one was killed. The bombs injured a policeman and one of Dortmund’s players, 26-year-old Spanish international Marc Bartra.
Authorities initially investigated the possibility that Islamist extremists or activists from the far-right and left were behind the attack. But they arrested a suspect Friday and said was motivated by greed alone.
