A soccer game between hosts Germany and Netherlands which German Chancellor Angel Merkel was due to attend in Hanover was called off two hours before its scheduled start on Tuesday over fears of a planned bombing.
Hanover Police President Volker Kluwe said there were "specific indications" of a planned attack with explosives at the game. "We had received specific indications that an attack with explosives was planned," Kluwe told NDR state broadcaster.
Authorities in Hanover, Germany, have discovered one explosive device that was meant to be detonated inside a soccer stadium and a second suspicious device at a train station, a reporter for Germany's n-tv told CNN.
The reporter said the train station was being evacuated.
