least one person and 10 injured in an explosion near the German city of Nuremberg on Sunday, July 24, in what authorities said was believed to be an intentional blast.

This was the fourth violent incident in Germany in as many days and came as the country was still on edge after the killing of nine people by an 18-year-old Iranian-German gunman in Munich on Friday, July 22.

The blast in the town Ansbach prompted the evacuation of more than 2,000 people from a nearby music festival, authorities said.

“We assume it was a deliberate explosion,” a Bavarian Interior Ministry spokesman said.
He said no arrests had been made in connection with the explosion but Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann was en route to the site.

Police offered no immediate details on the individual killed or those injured but said the explosion, inside a restaurant according to local media, was reported at 10:12 p.m. (2012 GMT).

Earlier on Sunday, July 24, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested after killing a pregnant woman in a machete attack that killed one woman in Reutlingen, near Stuttgart.

That attack came after a refugee from Pakistan wielding an axe injured five people near Wuerzbuerg, also in southern Germany, before he was shot dead by police on July 18.

Ansbach is home to a U.S. Army base and the 12th Combat Aviation Brigade. A spokesman at the base said the base had no information about the explosion. (Reuters)

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.
