Dortmund bomb attack suspect still under arrest

German prosecutors have confirmed they continue to keep Borussia Dortmund bombing attack suspect, Abdul Beset A, in custody while investigations move forward.  

Three devices exploded on Tuesday as Dortmund footballers were travelling to a match against Monaco in a UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg tie.

Spain international Marc Bartra underwent an operation after breaking a bone in his wrist. No other players were hurt although a police officer was also injured.

Abdul Beset A is reportedly accused of leading an IS command unit in Iraq in 2014, and of planning abductions, terror and murder sprees.

The Iraq national is said to be due to appear in court sometime later on Thursday, and is expected to be formally arrested in connection with the bombing attack.

The BBC report that a 28-year-old German man is also under suspicion, but has not yet been arrested in connection to the attack on Dortmund's team bus.
