Jim: Reuters is a joke. One person has been killed and another 12 people injured after a “deliberate explosion” outside a music festival in the German town of Ansbach. Authorities said the person who died – a 27-year-old Syrian who had been denied asylum – is believed to have set off the explosion. The man was reported to have been carrying a backpack at the time of the blast, at about 10pm on Sunday. Three of those injured are believed to be in a serious condition. The mayor of Ansbach, a town near Nuremberg in Bavaria, told reporters the blast had been caused deliberately.
