GERMANY — Officials were responding to an explosion at a restaurant in Ansbach, Germany on Sunday.

According to police, one person is dead and nine more are wounded.

The incident prompted a ‘large-scale’ police operation, local media reported.

A police helicopter was also deployed.

Bavaria’s interior ministry later said the blast ‘was not an accident, and appears to have been intentional,’ Sky News reported.

The restaurant, ‘Eugene’s Winebar’, is near an ongoing three-day music festival.

Over 2,500 concert-goers were evacuated from the venue.

The city’s Mayor told local media the explosion was caused by an “explosive device.’

The attacker is believed to be the lone fatality.

Ansbach is a city in the German state of Bavaria. It is the capital of the administrative region of Middle Franconia.
