Dortmund, Germany, – Three explosions went off near the team bus of German football club Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, injuring Spanish defender Marc Bartra.

Security officials told dpa there was no immediate indication the explosions were terrorism-related.

However, police in Dortmund said they believed it to be “an attack with serious explosive devices.” The devices could have been placed in a hedge near a car park, a spokesman said.

The incident came as the Dortmund side, currently fourth in the Bundesliga, left the team hotel for the Champions League quarter-final match against French side Monaco.

The first-leg match was postponed until Wednesday, and spectators inside the stadium later left without incident.

Police said there were three separate explosions, bursting one of the vehicle’s windows and injuring one player, later identified by the club as Bartra.

He was taken to hospital with a hand injury, not thought to be serious.(QNA)
