It was first reported at 10:12 p.m. CET (4.12 p.m. ET). A spokesman for the Bavarian Interior Ministry initially said it was unclear if the blast was accidental or intentional, but sources including the local mayor now suggest an explosive device was detonated. The BBC has reported that Interior Ministry sources have too confirmed the explosion is likely to have been “intentional”. A nearby music festival with around 2,500 attendees has now been shut down, and speculation is emerging on social media platforms that a man was seen to have been turned away from the festival just moments before the blast. The details have not yet been confirmed. BREAKING – Local mayor in German town of #Ansbach says deadly explosion at
