New Delhi: Two bomb attacks took place in German city of Dresden on Monday evening. In one attack, a mosque was targeted and in the second attack, the International Congress Center of Dresden.
The first explosion was reported at just before 10 pm (4 pm ET) and the second attack was reported several minutes later, at 10.19 pm.
According to police, no one was injured. Though, the mosque was badly damaged.
“Both attacks happened in the same time. Although no one claimed responsibility for the incident, we must have to consider a xenophobic motive for the attack,” Horst Kretzschmar, the city’s police chief in Dresden said in a statement, adding that police were on high alert.
Police said that the attacks may be related because Germans are celebrating the Unity Day next week.
“The attack might also be relevant to the German Unity Day, which will be celebrated next weekend,” police said.
