Germany: Three injured in explosion at Gurdwara

Submitted by alvin on Sun, 2016-04-17 12:46 Los Angeles: At least three people were injured after an unknown person allegedly set off a minor explosion at a Gurdwara in Germany last night. Quoting the Associated Press, Buzzfeed reported that a 60-year-old man was critically injured in the explosion which blew out several windows of the gurdwara, in the northwestern city of Essen. A 47-year-old man and a 56-year-old man also sustained minor injuries. The local police claim that a masked person was seen fleeing the area shortly after the explosion, however, they added that there was no evidence so far that the attack had any links to terrorism. Three people were detained, but were released later as the investigation continued, police said. Photos were shared on social media showing the damaged temple and broken glass amid the decorations as a wedding was hosted at the gurdwara earlier. (ANI)
