After the letter bomb attack at the headquarters of the food discounter Lidl in Neckarsulm, Germany, the German authorities scrutinized mail and parcel traffic - with success: a suspicious shipment was intercepted at the DHL distribution center at Munich Airport.
The public prosecutor's office in Heidelberg and the State Criminal Police Office in Baden-Württemberg announced that the mail item was addressed to an unspecified food manufacturer. This was rendered harmless on Thursday night by explosives experts. in this context there was close cooperation with the Bavarian executive.
It is still unclear whether there is a connection with the letter bomb attack at Lidl. In any case, letters and parcels are currently being scrutinized more closely, as there is another case in which a shipment containing an explosive device was addressed to a beverage manufacturer. An employee was injured on Tuesday. There were also injuries at Lidl on Wednesday.
The public prosecutor's office did not provide any information on how the harmful package could be identified in the DHL distribution center at Munich Airport. It was only said that the program was "fished out" and defused. The investigation into the polluter is in full swing. The motive is still completely unclear.
