    2 arrests for blast at Sikh wedding

    ESSEN – German police have arrested two teenagers with Islamist backgrounds over an explosion that wounded three people at a Sikh temple, labelling it a “terrorist attack”.

    The blast that hit an Indian wedding party at the entrance to the temple in Essen on April 16 injured three men, one of them seriously.

    Police arrested two 16-year-olds with known links to regional Islamists over the attack, said city police chief Frank Richter.

    “We have to presume it was a terrorist act – religiously motivated terror by the Islamist scene,” Richter said in a statement, without linking the youths to a particular militant group.

    One of the teenagers had turned himself in to police, and the other had been arrested at his family home.
