Syrian Ansbach bomber pledged allegiance to ISIS

A video showing the Syrian refugee, who blew himself up in Ansbach, Germany Sunday, pledging allegiance to the leader of Islamic State has been found on his phone, said Bavaria's interior minister Joachim Hermann Monday afternoon. The Syrian refugee from a village near Aleppo, who was denied asylum in Germany but not deported, injured 15 people outside a local music festival, some seriously.

Further bomb-making equipment and violent videos were found at his accommodation including petrol, hydrogen peroxide and batteries, they added. The Bavarian minister reported an investigation to uncover any accomplices.
