The explosives were placed around the hotel.
The tires and the windows of the bus were completely destroyed.

One of the escorting police officers was also injured, he is still in hospital.
The supporters had to stay in the stadium untill all safe sign was given by the police.
The Monaco fans sang songs and clapped their hands in support of the Dortmund team, many could stay with German supporters who organized beds for French supporters so they could be able to watch the game on wednesday.

Responsiblility has not been claimed but many believe islamic based terrorists are responsible, some blamed right-wing hooligans.

Police found a letter near the justice department in which the writers claimed to have been responsible for the attack.
The letter started with the words: 'in the name of Allah', the writer stated that all famous Germans would be targeted unless the Germans stopped with their military support to the coalition and he also demanded Rammstein airbase being shut down.
Police didnt give more details about the letter and its origine.

Wednesday morning a suspect was arrested with islamic appearance, this proved to be ...how surprising.... a 25 year old Iraqi.
The guy wasnt responsible for the attack but he proved to be the leader of a gang in Iraq that kidnapped and killed people, he remains in custody.

Uefa and Fifa officials reacted in shock.
Barcelona, Bartras former club, spoke friendly words in support of the Spanish international.

21 april,

Police said they now have arrested the man responsible, it is a 28 year old Russian, Sergej W.
His motive was financial. With the attack he hoped the stocks for the soccerclub would go down so he could make a profit.
More details were given, the man used 3 explosive devices filled with metal pins attached to the gate at the hotels entrance.
They were set off with a remote control, he had a room in the same hotel. Detail, the guy did not know when Borussia had to play so he booked for a week......

A terrorist targeted young children as he drove a hijacked lorry into a crowded shopping street in Stockholm, witnesses claimed to a reporter after fleeing the scene.
Infants’ buggies were sent “flying through the air”, one Swedish broadcaster reported, as the vehicle zigzagged along the pedestrianised Queen Street shopping district and crashed in the window of a department store.
“It drove from left to right. It didn’t look out of control, it was trying to hit people,” a second witness claimed. “It hit people, it was terrible. It hit a little buggy with a child in it, demolished it.”
Swedish police said on Saturday morning that they believe a 39-year-old suspect was behind the truck attack which left four dead and 15 injured, but declined to comment on reports that the suspect was a father-of-four from Uzbekistan.
The unnamed suspect reportedly confessed to the attack after being detained in Marsta, which is around 25 miles north of the Swedish capital.
Some reports suggested he had previously posted jihadist propaganda on his Facebook page and had images of people injured in the explosion at the Boston marathon in April 2013.
Police found explosives in the truck used in the attack in Stockholm, Swedish television said on Saturday citing multiple unnamed police sources.
Eight victims, including children, remain in hospital, according to Swedish media. Three of the victims died at the scene, a report said, while one died after arriving at the hospital. 
Sweden’s prime minister, Stefan Löfven, said everything indicated the incident was terrorism.
It happened less than two weeks after the Westminster Bridge attack and stirred up memories of the attacks in Nice and Berlin where Islamist sympathisers used lorries as weapons – a tactic first suggested in a 2010 directive from al-Qaeda commanders to their supporters.
The attack also came less than two months after Donald Trump provoked a row with Sweden after suggesting that immigration had led to rising crime in the country.
