Far-right email claims responsibility for Dortmund attack, describing it as 'final warning'

The team investigating Tuesday's attack on the Borussia Dortmund bus are examining the possibility that it could have been carried out by a far-right group.

A report in Der Tagesspiegela Berlin-based daily newspaper, has claimed that it received an email on Thursday in which the author, who is anonymous, describes the attack on the bus as a 'final warning'. As well as this, the email mentions Adolf Hitler and criticises multiculturalism.

Three explosions caused windows to shatter on the bus as the Dortmund team made their way to their Champions League quarter final first leg against Monaco at Westfalenstadion.

Although Marc Bartra was treated in hospital for an injury to his wrist, nobody was seriously injured in the incident.

However, when speaking to a journalist the following day, team captain Marcel Schmelzer explained how the discovery of nails in coach headrests had brought home how close those on the coach came to losing their lives.

Investigators looking into the explosion had found three copies of a note containing Islamic rhetoric at the scene, but the possibility that this may now have been used as a diversion is now being looked into.
