Armed police at the scene near the blasts

Dortmund's Spanish worldwide Marc Bartra and a policeman were injured in the roadside blasts set off as the team headed to a Champions League game against Monaco on Tuesday night.

German federal prosecutors investigating the three explosions that hit the Borussia Dortmund team bus on Tuesday night said they had detained a suspect.

Spanish defender Marc Bartra suffered injuries to his arm and wrist and is in hospital. "Both of their apartments were searched, and one of the two has been detained", Koehler said.

Frauke Koehle, from the federal prosecutor's office, said: "Two suspects from the Islamist spectrum have become the focus of our investigation".

Two are being played in Germany: Dortmund's match against Monaco rescheduled from Tuesday, and defending champion Real Madrid playing at Bayern Munich.

She says investigators are still working to determine how the devices were detonated on Tuesday night and what substance was used.

The statement claiming responsibility for the attack reportedly starts with a reference to "Allah, the most beneficent, the most merciful" and states that sports personalities and celebrities belonging to "Germany and other crusading nations" were on ISIS' "kill list", reported the Guardian. Prosecutors have said they are seeking suspects on attempted murder charges.

The one-page document also mentioned an "Islamic State death list" that athletes and other celebrities would be put on unless the German jets were withdrawn and the USA airbase in the German town of Ramstein was shut down, the report added.

Merkel, the club said, "sees it as a very positive sign that the team does not buckle before terror, but plays on in the face of this hard situation".

Bill O'Reilly goes on vacation amid sponsor backlash
The journalist has denied the claims, but that has not stopped dozens of companies from pulling advertisements from his show. Around this time of year, O'Reilly said on his show, "I grab some vacation, because it's spring and Easter time ".

"None of us are scared", he said.

Another letter was published online, in which left-wing extremist groups claimed to have carried out the attack, but prosecutors had reason to believe this letter was not authentic.

When the bus passed the Wittbräucker Straße 563 street in the city of Dortmund, three explosions occurred from behind a hedge.

Lentwojt said she is confident that Dortmund's players will be able to perform in the rescheduled match.

After several near misses, they finally got back into the game just before the hour when Dembele stuck into an empty net after neat play by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kagawa.

But Lars Bender, the midfielder who replaced Bartra in the starting lineup and deployed as a makeshift defender, was left red-faced when he headed Andrea Raggi's cross into his own net in the 35th minute for 2-0 to Monaco. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win.

The 80,000-capacity Signal Iduna Park was later evacuated safely and the match postponed until 18:45 local time (16:45 GMT) on Wednesday.
