1 Min Read

FRANKFURT, April 21 (Reuters) - German police arrested a man on Friday who is suspected of having planted a bomb on the bus of soccer team Borussia Dortmund last week, the office of the German federal chief prosecutor said.

The 28-year old man, who has dual German and Russian nationality, is accused of attempted murder, inflicting serious bodily harm and causing an explosion, it said in a statement.

The players' bus was heading to their stadium for a Champions League match against AS Monaco on April 11 when three explosions occurred, wounding Spanish defender Marc Bartra and delaying the match by a day. (Reporting by Maria Sheahan; Editing by Paul Tait)
