Bombing of Borussia Dortmund Bus Targeted Club’s Stock, Prosecutors Say

Quote
BERLIN — Germany’s elite antiterrorism unit has arrested a 28-year-old German-Russian man who is suspected of trying to blow up the Borussia Dortmund team bus, with the apparent aim of driving down the price of the club’s stock so he could profit through a speculation scheme, federal prosecutors said Friday.

The suspect, identified only as Sergei W. in keeping with German privacy laws, was charged with attempted murder, inflicting serious bodily harm and carrying out an explosion in the attack, whichwounded one player and one police officer.

His arrest represented the clearest explanation to date of the motive for an attack that has been attributed at various times to Islamist extremists and right-wing and left-wing political groups, and has added to election-year fears that Germany is vulnerable to terrorism.

According to prosecutors, the suspect had checked into the hotel where the team was staying. On the day of the attack, he purchased 15,000 put options over the internet for shares in Borussia Dortmund, which is publicly traded. These would have entitled him to sell shares later at a predetermined price.

The financial maneuver could have resulted in a substantial profit for the suspect if the shares had undergone a “massive fall” value in the interim, prosecutors said. “A significant share price drop could have been expected if a player had been seriously injured or even killed as a result of the attack,” they said.
"We both would have looked silly if he came in, got out and came back in.”

'Alarming' rise in use of children in 'suicide' attacks by Boko Haram in Lake Chad region – UNICEF

12 April 2017 – The use of children, particularly girls, by the Boko Haram terrorist group in violent attacks in the Lake Chad region has seen an “alarming” surge in 2017, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has reported.

According to the UNICEF report, Silent Shame: Bringing out the voices of children caught in the Lake Chad crisis, 27 children have been used to carry out bomb attacks in public places across Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon in the first quarter of this year. During the same period last year, the number was nine.

Islamic State Nears Egypt Tourism Hub With South Sinai Attack

The Islamic State’s Egyptian affiliate claimed responsibility for an attack on a police checkpoint near St. Catherine’s Monastery in south Sinai, the latest strike by the group against Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority and the country’s vital tourism industry.

One policeman was killed and three others were wounded when militants opened fire at the checkpoint, the Interior Ministry said in a statement late Tuesday. Several militants were also injured in the shootout. The Islamic State claim was reported by SITE Intel Group, which monitors jihadist channels on social media.

ISIS launched an attack in Paris, just days before the French presidential election:

PARIS SHOOTING Paris shooting leaves one policeman dead and ‘two seriously injured’ as ‘ISIS terrorists armed with AK47s’ open fire on the Champs-Élysée in Paris

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3376910/paris-shooting-terror-attack-champs-elysees/

Dramatic video captures French police shooting dead ISIS terrorist who killed officer and wounded two others in AK-47 ambush on the Champs Elysees as manhunt launched for SECOND extremist - just days before French presidential election

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4429938/Major-road-Paris-closed-police.html

The good news is this kind of incident would never happen here in 'Merica where every other person is a law-abiding concealed carry guru waiting to save the world. 

Also nice to see--the police in Paris still wear police uniforms.   Here in the USA, they would have been delayed by 30 minutes to all run to the station and change into their woodland camo fatigues.

^^ How is that bus bomb terrorism? it was an attempt to make money.  The only relevance to this thread is that people had thought it might have been terrorism, but it seems it wasn't, so I guess that's good to know.

This is a good example of why the two separate threads made sense, by the way. The Paris attack yesterday was part of a coordinated, ongoing wave of terrorism perpetuated by radical Islamists against the western world. That's a different topic then some random guy trying to manipulate stock prices.

If you're a Radical Islamic Terrorist this might be the worst way to go:

Wild boars overrun Islamic State position, kill 3 militants

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2017/04/25/wild-boars-overrun-islamic-state-position-kill-3-militants/100876844/

Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say.

Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk when the boars overwhelmed them Sunday. Five other militants were injured, al-Assi said. He said the group was poised to attack a band of local tribesmen who had fled to nearby mountains since militants seized the town of Hawija three years ago.

Manchester Arena Suicide Bombing: 22 Die at Ariana Grande Concert

MANCHESTER, England — Children were among 22 people killed in a suicide attack after an Ariana Grande concert at Britain's Manchester Arena, police said early Tuesday.

The bomber also died when he detonated an improvised explosive device near one of the venue's exits at 10:33 p.m. local time (5:33 p.m. ET) on Monday, according to authorities.

Why did you feel it was necessary to post this in a thread about terrorism? I don't see the relevance. It's particularly odd given you did it the day after a Radical Islamic Terrorist murdered 22 people, mostly little girls, at a concert. It almost seems like you wanted to deflect from that story.

It's all about opportunity.  I liken this to glorifying gangs in the US inner cities.  The kids look up to them and are recruited while they are young and don't know any better.  This kind of radical Islamic kid is no different.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here it is anyway. Which is worse, that this person was a Neo-Nazi, or that he converted to Islam and then murdered two of his former Neo-Nazi friends.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the group had explosives in their home. The police have started an ongoing investigation into one of the most bizarre news reports of the day......

Egypt: 26 dead as gunmen fire on bus carrying Coptic Christians

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/05/26/africa/egypt-shooting-coptic-christians/index.html?adkey=bn



I ended up going down a rabbit  hole on Wikipedia while reading about this story. Over the last few years terrorism has become so widespread and frequent that a new article is created every month. So far there have been 133 terrorist attacks in May - the vast majority of which are Radical Islamic Terrorism (I count about 15 that aren't):

If you go through many of my posts on this board you will see plenty in incidents not considered terrorist attacks that should be. I don't feel like compiling them for someone who has an agenda.

Also, looking at terrorist incidents from one month is pretty stupid, don't you agree?

Katie Hopkins, the Sean Hannity of Britain, finally goes too far.

British Columnist’s Career Implodes After ‘Final Solution’ Tweet
by Ken Meyer | 8:39 am, May 26th, 2017

A British broadcaster and tabloid columnist has been sacked from her radio job after saying on Twitter that a “final solution” was necessary after the bombing in Manchester this week.

Katie Hopkins, a Mail Online writer and host for Leading Britain’s Conversation (LBC), lost her radio gig shortly after posting a highly-controversial tweet about the terror attack that left 22 people dead and dozens more hospitalized:

^^ So your answers are no, no, and no? Noted. And in answer to your question: no. Looking at a list of terrorist attacks in the past month is in no way "stupid." There are links at the bottom of that article to previous months and years if you'd like to have more context.
