Mounting refugee attacks in Germany

The explosion in the southern German town of Ansbach late Sunday is found to be an intentional act by a 27-year-old Syrian refugee. This third act of refugee-related violence within a week is expected to highlight a dilemma on the refugee issue for the German government.
The man believed to carry an explosive device was killed while 12 others were injured, three of them seriously, in the blast that took place at the entrance area of a local open-air music festival where about 2,500 people gathered.
Young refugee is found to have tried twice to kill himself. “We do not know at the moment whether the offender purely wanted to commit suicide or whether his intention was to take other people into death,” said Joachim Herrmann, interior minister of Bavaria state, early Monday morning.
Earlier on Sunday, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested in an assault believed to be a crime of passion, in which a woman was killed and two other people were injured in the southwestern German city of Reutlingen.
The Sunday incidents occurred within a week after an axe attack by a 17-year-old Afghan refugee on a train left five people injured near Wurzburg in southern Germany. The perpetrator was shot dead by police, and the attack was confirmed to be connected with the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.
The incidents, all connected to refugees, are expected to further feed the arguments in European countries that refugees are a source of increasing terrorism.
