Reuters , Monday 25 Jul 2016

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said on Monday that a video in Arabic found on the mobile phone of the Syrian who set off a bomb in the Bavarian town of Ansbach showed that it was a terrorist attack.

"A provisional translation by an interpreter shows that he expressly announces, in the name of Allah, and testifying his allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a famous Islamist leader, an act of revenge against the Germans because they're getting in the way of Islam," he said at a news conference.

Herrmann added: "I think that after this video there's no doubt that the attack was a terrorist attack with an Islamist background."
