Germany's Rock am Ring music festival evacuated in terror scare

Germany's Rock am Ring festival is evacuated because of a terror threat



Crowds at one of Germany's biggest music festivals had to be evacuated because of "concrete leads" of a possible terror threat.
The Rock am Ring festival at the Nurburgring race track near the western town of Nurburg was suspended on Friday, the first night of the three-day event.
Security had been stepped up at the festival in the wake of the Manchester bomb attack.

Checks included body searches and a ban on rucksacks and bags, while around 1,200 police officers were on duty.
Koblenz police said the event had been suspended due to "concrete leads, which do not allow us to eliminate a possible terror threat".
They said that "at least one person of non-German origin on which there was police information in the area of terrorism had access" to secure areas at the event.
It is understood they had been involved in the festival preparations, including putting up the security fences.
There was also a discrepancy with those individuals' backstage passes not matching their real names.
Three people were arrested on Friday night and their homes searched. All were later released, but remain under investigation.
The event resumed on Saturday with revellers being allowed back in by the early afternoon.
Around 86,000 people had been evacuated from the festival, with many due to watch German hard rock giants Rammstein perform on Friday night.
British singer-songwriter Rag'n'Bone Man had been on stage earlier in the day.
The organisers used loudspeakers to inform concert-goers about the possible threat.
Leaving the site calmly, people sang You'll Never Walk Alone.
Festival organiser Marek Lieberberg said the grounds were clear by 9.30pm, about a half hour after people were told that they were going to have to leave.
The rock festival's official Facebook page thanked fans for their "incredibly disciplined behaviour" and "exemplary cooperation".
Some 85 bands were due to play on four stages over the weekend, with Germany's Toten Hosen headlining Saturday's bill and California's System Of A Down due to perform on Sunday.
Germany has been on alert after a series of violent attacks last year, including when a lorry ploughed into a Christmas market in Berlin killing 12 people.
