German Soccer Match Canceled, Stadium Evacuated After 'Serious' Indication Of Explosive Materials

Filed under: PolitikSad SadFrancophiliaViolenceSoccerScary!Viral: News

no title

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.

As you can imagine, the 72-year-old was filled with relief as he hugged and kissed his little girl. Once the journalist went back to work, he shared the experience of seeing his daughter again, saying:

"It was an amazing relief just to squeeze her and to know that she was safe. Of course we had exchanged text messages after a frustrating failure to communicate during the awful incident on Friday night. All I can say is that the Rivera family is tremendously relieved, but we mourn so much for the other families that have suffered so much here … This was a really severe, horrible blow to the soul of the French people."

Ch-ch-check out the wonderfully touching moment (below) as we keep in our hearts all those affected by the terrible events last week.
