The current situation seems to be this. As the team came out of their hotel on the Wittbraucker Strasse, this is what I've been told by the police, there were explosive devices hidden in the hedge and they were somehow detonated. And there of course the team bus was affected. Marc Bartra was injured he has injuries on his hand and his arm and he is being treated. He is in hospital, but it's not in any way life-threatening.
