    Maybe they are after the Geramn soccer team. If memory serves me right, that is who France was playing at the time of the bombing.

    Commonality?

    "German Chancellor Angela Merkel was scheduled to watch Hannover game, and said she wanted to prove Germany was not afraid of terror attacks, but officials said she was not at the stadium."

    "One of the coordinated attacks on Friday had targeted the Stade de France, where President Francois Hollande was in attendance to watch France play Germany."


    I would be more inclined to think they were after the heads of State then the soccer team. ;)

    No, it wasn't. You have to be careful with the media..

    "Officials later said they received a slew of tips indicating an attack, but have not found any explosives on the scene."

    "The German newspaper Kreiszeitung reported there was an ambulance filled with explosives outside the stadium, a detail officials have not confirmed."
