Dortmund confirm a "bomb explosion" as team bus left their hotel. Players safe, they say.
@BILD reporting Bartra injured. All very worrying

Sky say Bartra's injuries are superficial.

Lone wolf with a history of mental illness would be my guess. Certainly none of his family would have known what he was doing.

Horrible news, thank goodness there appear to be no serious injuries but everyone at the club must be in a state of shock

Police have said that three explosions went off near the team bus as it approached the stadium in Dortmund.

Not an accident, it seems.

It seems at the moment that the attack has an islamistic background.

This seems to be very under the radar today in the world, considering the seriousness of it, could've of seen 15-20 class players and managers dead of course amongst fans, innocent civilians etc

Hardly under the radar. It's the lead story on the BBC.
We shouldn't over-react to these attacks, it's what the perpetrators want - publicity.

It's not even trending on Twitter anymore, it's not Sky News main front page, two pretty massive new sources that it's not appearing on.

Now an antifascistic group claims the attack for themselves as Dortmund is not fighting enough against racism and rightwing action.

Hope those behind the attack on the bus are caught and Bartra recovers. The game is going ahead tonight but think its a little bit too early to play the game and can't expect the Dortmund players to be in a state of mind where they can focus on the match fully, rather then the events of yesterday evening.

edit - And also hope the motorbike police officer as part of the bus escort who was injured recovers.
