Pistorius: "Contrary to reports, no explosives have been found."
a reply to: dollukka You've been duped. Nothing about an ambulance with a bomb in it. Just a threat about a terrorist attack. www.rt.com... Just more sensationalism it seems. Twitter be damned! I will apologize if proven wrong. ETA: I'm not dismissing the importance of the threat of attack, it's just OP Twitter source claimed ambulance-bomb was found. After some research all I found so far is a suspicious person being reported and the alleged threats of an attack. Could be some kids having some fun... The threat should be taken seriously though.

Whether it is TPTB writing a script or just real terrorists, this could be the beginning of a major show of terror.

Less than two hours before kick-off in the international match between Germany and the Netherlands in Hanover, the fixture was been canceled by German police due to a serious threat of an attack on the stadium.
Volker Klume, Hanover's chief of police, stated on German TV that a device "intended to be set-off inside the stadium" was found before the evacuation was confirmed.
However, in a press conference Germany's interior minister Thomas de Maiziere confirmed that no explosives had been found at the stadium.
"The indications of danger at today's game grew over the course of the evening so much so that we urgently recommended the cancellation of the game." De Maziere was joined by acting German FA president Reinhard Rauball and Lower Saxony's interior minister Boris Pistorius.
"The game going on would have be irresponsible," said Pistorius.
'A sad day for Germany' Earlier in the evening a "suspicious object" had been discovered by police forces around the stadium. Road blocks were set-up and no fans were allowed to enter the area surrounding the HDI-Arena.
However, police did eventually open the roads, allowing journalists and fans to enter the stadium.
"We received a tip-off that after the first object was found, another attack had been planned. We had to take this seriously," Klume added. The German national team was en-route to the stadium at the time of the evacuating, but Jens Grittner, the German FA press officer, has since confirmed that the team has been taken to a safe "unconfirmed" location.
