Must be the German wing of the Tea Party.
The international friendly between Germany and the Netherlands has been canceled after the stadium in Hanover was evacuated on Tuesday.
Hanover police told media that there were “concrete plans” to cause an explosion at the stadium.
German chancellor Angela Merkel was set to attend the match.
There had been a bomb threat about an hour earlier outside the stadium. Streets leading to it had been sealed off before the all-clear was given. Security outside the stadium included police armed with machine guns, the AP reports.
All joking aside, this is a serious situation:
It is being reported that German police have discovered a truck bomb disguised as a rescue vehicle near football stadium in Hannover.

Jesus, even an ambulance, a symbol of survival, has been caught with explosives in Hannover. This is madness.
