Germany: Two bombs exploded in Dresden, one in front of a mosque, no physical injuries
Reuters reports that German Police announced on 27 September that two improvised explosive devices were detonated in Dresden, in the eastern part of Germany, on the evening of 26 September. One was planted in front of a mosque and the other in front of an international conference center.
Nobody was physically harmed by the explosions. "For the time being nobody has taken responsibility, but we are presuming the motivation for this attack was xenophobia," Dresden Police Chief Horst Kretzschmar said.
Authorities were informed about the explosions on Monday at around 22:00. No reports of the extent of the damage had been released as of Tuesday afternoon.
Security measures were bolstered in front of all mosques in Dresden in response. The Associated Press reports that Dresden, the capital of the state of Saxony, has recently witnessed many racist attacks.
