According to German news site, Focus.De, a boy of twelve, possibly controlled by the Islamic State, attempted to detonate an explosive device with nails at a Christmas market in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
Even more surprisingly, sources inside Germany feel this may be a leak, and not a press release, as this took place on December 5, but the information only appeared in the press in the past couple of hours.
An excerpt from Focus:
A 12-year-old German-Iraqi apparently tried to carry out a nail bomb attack on the Christmas market in Ludwigshafen at the Rhine. Focus reports this in its latest edition, referring to legal and security authorities. According to the investigators, the “highly religiously radicalized” boy might have been “incited or instructed” by an “unknown member” of the terror militia Islamic State (IS). Only because the charger did not ignite was there no detonation.
