Police boost security for rescheduled Dortmund match after team bus attack

Dortmund police say they have boosted security for Wednesday’s rescheduled Champions League match between Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco that was postponed on Tuesday following an attack on Dortmund’s team bus.

DORTMUND, GERMANY (APRIL 12, 2017) (REUTERS) – Dortmund police said on Wednesday (April 12) they had upped security for the rescheduled Borussia Dortmund match against AS Monaco following an attack on Dortmund’s team bus.

The bus was attacked with explosives on Tuesday (April 11) shortly before the start of the Champions League clash, injuring defender Marc Bartra and forcing the match to be postponed by a day.

A police spokeswoman said extra police and sniffer dogs would be in the stadium to ensure fans and players felt safe.

Investigators are looking into the possible involvement of Islamist militants or anti-Nazi activists in the blasts, media reported on Wednesday.
