Terror Attack ahead of Euro 2024

The UEFA Euro 2024 kick starts on 14th June with hosts Germany taking on Scotland in the opening game. Amidst all the glitter and the excitement of the tournament, the death of 29-year-old Police officer has raised concerns. Following his brutal murder, Police Chief has claimed that they are ‘doing everything to stop another attack’.

“A lone perpetrator is the nightmare of the police. In the event of a planned terrorist attack by a group, communication is carried out among each other. Digital traces are left behind, for example, when obtaining explosives or downloading instructions on how to make bombs,” said the Chairman of the German Police Union (DPolG) Rainer Wendt.

“We know the threats, observe them around the clock with immense effort. But we don’t have a lone perpetrator who has become radicalised on the internet on our radar. It doesn’t need any preparatory action, it doesn’t leave any traces beforehand. He takes a knife, goes out and stabs people in public spaces. You can hardly protect yourself from that,” Wendt added.
