Frankfurt (ddpADN / ND). The explosion of a package in a delivery office in Frankfurt / Main resulted in a fatality on Wednesday. A 35-year-old woman from B├╝dingen succumbed to her injuries. Eleven other postal workers were injured. As the police announced in the afternoon, the explosion was likely caused by a homemade bomb. In the package, screws should probably have increased the splintering effect.

The detonation occurred shortly before 8:00 a.m. when an employee tried to put the package on a conveyor belt. There was still no information about the origin of the shipment. It was addressed to a recipient in Frankfurt. The LKA and the BKA participate in the investigation.

The Deutsche Postgewerkschaft assumed an attack. Union secretary Werner Kirsch spoke of a "cowardly assassination attempt".
