Germany: Muslims arrested for bomb attack on Sikh Temple

Police said on Thursday that two teenagers they have arrested in connection with a bomb attack on a Sikh temple in the western German city of Essen are linked to the Islamic fundamentalist scene there.

Officers received large numbers of tip-offs during their investigation that allowed them to identify the two 16-year-olds believed to behind the attack, the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ) reported.

“The accused have clear links to the terrorist scene,” Essen police chief Frank Richter told journalists at a press conference, saying that both teenagers had made partial confessions.

    Don’t the Germans have any respect for the teenagers’ culture?

    Are the security measures of German synagogues too much for these cowards?

    Hmm, usually it’s sikhs doing the bombing on sikhs. They seem to have a well developed intramural antagonism.

    The cultural enrichment lately in Germany is just so… so… so… enriching and explosive! *sigh*
