Hidden in the Fridge Police Overlook Explosives in Salafist's Home

German authorities investigating alleged plans by Islamists to assassinate a far-right leader appear to have made a serious mistake. After overlooking explosives in their initial search of a suspect's apartment, they then detonated the material without first taking samples for analysis.
Police first discovered a pistol and explosives in Marco G.'s Bonn apartment, but missed more explosives in the refrigerator.
