Another possible terrorist attack may have just been thwarted.

HDI-Arena in Hannover, Germany was evacuated Tuesday afternoon just 90 minutes before a friendly match between the German national team and Netherlands was set to take place.

Hanover police chief Volker Kluwe told local media outlets that the game was cancelled after multiple "serious" threats were received warning of a potential attack similar to what happened in Paris, France.

While no explosive materials have been confirmed, several reports have indicated that a truck filled with bombs disguised as an ambulance was located outside of the stadium.

What makes this thwarted attack even more eerily similar to the fatal killings in Paris on Friday is that German Chancellor Angela Merkel was scheduled to attend the game, just as President François Hollande was watching his match.

There have also been reports that a concert venue similar to the Bataclan has been evacuated.

We'll continue to update you as the story develops.

Stay safe, everyone.

Karim supposedly extorted a teammate over his sex tape.

Well that's gonna put some tension on this team!

Real Madrid soccer star Karim Benzema was charged on Thursday for allegedly blackmailing his teammate on the France National Team over a sex tape.

Rihanna's former flame was brought in for questioning on Wednesday regarding his involvement in extorting fellow footballer Mathieu Valbuena with his intimate video.

A Versailles judge charged the athlete with conspiracy to blackmail and participating in a criminal group. The 27-year-old supposedly offered to keep Mathieu's "incriminating" flick from leaking to the public, but apparently insisted on being paid to keep quiet.

The teammates reportedly discussed the filthy film during a team meeting last month. An investigation is attempting to discover whether or not that exchange involved Karim blackmailing the 31-year-old.

The France native was released from jail after being charged, provided that he doesn't speak to anyone else involved in the case.

So, regarding games for the France National Team, neither Karim nor Mathieu are allowed to participate together until the case is closed.

The 27-year-old Frenchman, who also plays for the French national team, was taken in for questioning on Wednesday in regards to his connection in the extortion attempt of his teammate's sex tape.

According to reports, the investigation behind Mathieu Valbuena's tape began in July in Versailles, France, and involves footage shot on a cell phone.

Though it was only last month that Karim and Mathieu supposedly had a conversation about the sex tape, which has investigators trying to figure out whether it was part of the alleged blackmail plot.

If RiRi's former flame is convicted, he could face up to five years in French prison for blackmail.

Yikes. Hopefully Karim has nothing to worry about it, but only time will tell!
