UPDATE: Police have reportedly found an ambulance car “full of explosives” outside the Hannover stadium, according to a local newspaper, citing police sources.

============================================================

While everyone looks for someone to blame in the Paris jihad attacks except the jihadic doctrine that has roiled the world, the fact is that Europe is on tenterhooks. People are afraid to walk down the street, go to the mall — to live.

And mark my words — it’s only just begun.

But still the elites are twisted in knots about possible islamophobia.

Now this:  ABC News, November 17, 2015 Hannover stadium hosting Germany-Netherlands game is being evacuated.

Like President Hollande at the game in France, Merkel was set to attend this one as well.

“And at least one of the ISIS attackers in Paris had tried to gain access to France’s national soccer stadium. The attacker was turned away by security after it was discovered he was wearing an explosive vest. While attempting to escape from security, the attacker detonated his vest outside of the stadium.”

“Germany-Netherlands game has been canceled, and the stadium is being evacuated,” Business Insider, November 17, 2015:

The Hannover stadium hosting a Germany-Netherlands soccer friendly was being evacuated Tuesday. A stadium announcement said the Germany-Netherlands game in Hannover has been canceled.

According to BBC, the stadium started its evacuations two hours before the start of the march. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was scheduled to attend the match.

The reason for the evacuation has yet to be announced, although AFP, citing an official, reported that the evacuation was due to “security reasons.” The evacuation comes just days after ISIS launched coordinated attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people last Friday.

And at least one of the ISIS attackers in Paris had tried to gain access to France’s national soccer stadium. The attacker was turned away by security after it was discovered he was wearing an explosive vest. While attempting to escape from security, the attacker detonated his vest outside of the stadium.

The evacuation of the stadium follows a decision Monday by the Belgian soccer federation to cancel a game scheduled for Tuesday between Belgium and Spain. The federation cited security concerns following the Paris attacks and how one Belgian-based French suspect was still on the run following the attacks.

UPDATE:

HANNOVER, Germany — A German newspaper is reporting that a soccer match in Hannover was canceled because an ambulance full of explosives was found out front following a bomb threat.

There was no immediate confirmation of that report, though the Hannover chief of police was quoted by multiple sources as saying “there was a device intended to be detonated inside the stadium.”

An announcement by police informed spectators about an hour and a half before kickoff on Tuesday that the stadium would be evacuated.

Members of the German government including Chancellor Angela Merkel had been scheduled to attend the match to send a signal that Germany wouldn’t bow to terrorism in the wake of the Paris attacks.

Announcements at the stadium in northern Germany advised people to go home in a calm manner, and that there was no danger to fear. Most fans were still waiting outside when the order to evacuate came about an hour and a half before kickoff.

There were no signs of panic, with most fans seemingly accepting the decision with resignation. Police became more forceful with members of the media who attempted to stay beside the stadium.

Security was very tight before the game, with police armed with machine guns surrounding the stadium and maintaining a very obvious presence in the city. Reporters arriving for the game were searched, while a sniffer dog was deployed to check their bags.
