There still hasn’t been an Isis attack on Germany

Federal investigators have taken over the case looking into the bombing in Ansbach on Sunday that killed the attacker and left 15 other people injured, four of them seriously.

It takes a particular type of crime to go to federal prosecutors. The knife attack in Reutlingen which happened a few hours earlier is being treated as a local affair, despite also causing a fatality, as investigators believe it was a crime of passion.

The Ansbach case is different. Like the axe attack in Würzburg six days earlier, there is believed to be an Islamist motive behind it.

Prosecutors are investigating whether the bomber, Mohammed D., was a member of Isis and whether other people assisted in the attack.

But at this stage the evidence seems far from clear.

On Monday investigators found a video on the bomber’s phone in which he pledged allegiance to Isis.
