Bombs raise fear of German left-wing attacks

Security stepped up in Berlin after the discovery of the sixteenth firebomb in less than a week.

    The discovery of a firebomb on rail tracks in Berlin has increased fears of renewed attacks by left-wing groups in Germany.

    Security at railway stations has been stepped up following the discovery of the sixteenth explosive device in in nine locations in less than a week.

    Hundreds of trains have been delayed because of partial shutdowns, but there have been no injuries.

    A previously unknown leftist group claimed responsibility for the bomb, saying they were protesting against Germany's military involvement in Afghanistan and the country's role as an arms exporter.
