German police arrest suspect in Dortmund bus attack
German police on Friday arrested a man suspected of carrying out a bomb attack on the bus of football team Borussia Dortmund last week.

According to German prosecutors, 28-year-old Sergej W, who has dual German and Russian nationality, is not linked to any extremist groups.

It is suspected that the motive was financial and Sergej speculated on Dortmund’s share value dropping after the attack.

Footballer Marc Bartra and a policeman were injured after the coach was hit by three blasts as it travelled from a hotel to the team’s ground in Dortmund before a Champions League match with AS Monaco.
