Breaking News: Germany vs Netherlands cancelled

Post by rwo power on Tue Nov 17, 2015 12:34 pm

I just read a breaking news flash on TV: The friendly match Germany vs Netherlands in Hannover has been canceled right now and the stadium is being evacuated. As of now there is no further information by the police.

This is getting ridiculous. The terrorists are having the exact effect they intended to have...

Good. Even at the slightest threat, the games should be called off.

I'm definitely not amused. I hope they will now put more effort into ousting hate preachers and radicalised idiots that return from terrorist training camps and throw them into a deep and dark dungeon.

This seriously needs to be gone down hard on before the Euros next year.

I guess all this will also have an impact on coming CL and domestic league matches in Europe.

Could be a security threat, but could also be a "prank" by idiots to leave an empty package in the stadium, or, perhaps most likely, could be an overreaction by the police. Nobody wants to give the 'all clear' now if they have even the slightest suspicion of anything, err, suspicious.

According to the news there were infos by the secret service about a possible threat, so not just a prank. Earlier today, 7 persons were arrested in Aachen (a German town near the Belgian border) in connection with terrorism, albeit they don't seem to be connected with the Hannover threats.

Both teams, Germany and Netherlands, did not arrive at the HDI Arena in Hannover, they were diverted to a safe location which is kept secret at the moment.

Well, in that case it is indeed very fortunate that the officials got knowledge of this and managed to avert an attack and loss of lives.

A Jazz concert has been cancled too. Seems like the police thinks there can still happen something somewhere else.

Thankfully that was made up by a local paper BUT there was still "concrete threat" according to police which is why the game was called off.

Yeah. I just find it a little amusing how fast rumours spread when people are ready to believe them.

Hopefully there won't be any more cancellations of events and things start getting back to normal.

Atm noone know nothing , hoping it will be nothing.
tbf even in that case it'd be worrying if there is the obsessive fear even in a coutnry usually emotionally balanced as Germany ..
Countries as my Italy are much more inclined to succumb towards the fear, there are some places here where you can't go to school etc if it rains because of some
flood in past ...
And this 'd be a side effect of terrorism who 'g victory to Isis.
but anyway ... we are humans , the retake will be clearly slow , if it will reveal to be a fake alert , it is a further taste of it.
After all we are in war , in a generalized war, and there are no rules in it.
Then Germany had a bomb threat in Paris and the kamikaze wanted to do the massacre at stadium ...
