GERMANY: According to German media, an explosion occurred in Ansbach on Sunday evening, which has killed at least one person and injured as many as 10 others.

The casualty count is expected to rise as the full-scale of devastation gradually emerges.

Police have sealed off the area around Eugene’s Wine Bar, the news website reported.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann is on his way to the scene.
