Tonight, a cleaner made a shocking discovery in the train depot Cologne-Deutzerfeld: A bomb was placed in the car of a regional train. It is said to have been hidden in a cardboard box.

The dogs of the alarmed federal police then immediately barked at the place where it was found. The box was x-rayed by special forces and the homemade explosive device was finally defused on site by the bomb defusers.

According to initial investigations, the ” self-made device” was explosive and could have caused serious injuries to passengers standing around in the compartment due to the splinter effect.
