A Syrian Muslim terrorist with a backpack was denied entry to the nearby music festival were 2,500 people were attending a wine tasting event. He then detonated (some reports say it was premature detonation) killing himself and injuring others. Ansbach Mayor Carda Seidel confirmed it was an explosive device, and a spokesman for the Bavarian Interior Ministry said explosion was intentional. Yet the German Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann reported it as a “mental case” and that he has been treated for suicide. They tried to resuscitate him after the explosion but he died. He was rejected asylum but they allowed him to remain “because of the situation in Syria”.
