Islamic State claims German music fest suicide attack

The Islamic State has taken responsibility for the suicide attack by a 27-year-old Syrian asylum seeker outside an open-air music festival in Germany, even as German authorities found a video on the mobile phone of the suicide bomber in which he pledged allegiance to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said the man, who has not been named, also announced an act of revenge against Germans because they were standing in the way of Islam.

The asylum seeker from Syria detonated a backpack device after being refused entry to an open-air music festival in the German city of Ansbach, killing himself and injuring 12 others.
