The police warned the bomb could inflict serious damage and cause “most serious” injuries should it have detonated with passengers still in the wagon. Still, the circumstances of the incident remain largely unknown. The investigators believe it could be a foiled terrorist attack by either right-wing extremists or Islamists.
Yet, the police also haven’t ruled out that the bomb could have been used just as a threat or as a means of blackmail. It is also unclear if the potential perpetrators left the IED in the train compartment in advance to detonate it on the Day of German Unity, which is celebrated on Saturday or actually planned to detonate it on Friday but the device did not work.
So far, the police have searched all 27 trains parked in the same depot and are asking anyone who has seen “anything suspicious,” to contact law enforcement.
