Berlin, July 25: It seems the dark tunnel is getting longer for Germany. After the axe attack on a train in Wurzburg and the shooting in a shopping mall in Munich which led to the death of nine people, yet another explosion happened in the country---this time at a wine bar in Ansbach, near Nuremberg.

At least one person has been killed in the explosion which is suspected to be a bomb attack. [10, including gunman, dead after shooting carnage in Munich  ]


Police said up to 11 other people have been injured in the blast, reported on Sunday.

The incident occurred at 10.30 pm local time at Eugen's Weinstube wine bar. The Ansbach Open Music Festival has been cancelled.

Unconfirmed reports state a man with a rucksack was denied entry to the music festival shortly before the explosion ripped through the popular night spot.

A spokesman for Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said the explosion in the bar was a "deliberate" act rather than an accident.

He said: "At present, we assume it is not an accident."

Heavily armed police are at the scene and officers have cordoned off the area around the wine bar.

Initial reports suggested it may have been a gas explosion, but it now appears there was a more sinister motive.
