The location: around 100 meters from the luxury hotel Atlantic, not far from the railway line to the main train station.

Police cars sped up. After a first look, the officers immediately decided: withdraw, everything will be cordoned off! Cars are no longer allowed to pass the street An der Alster.

The defuser from the State Criminal Police Office moved in, x-raying the olive-green object. Then he transported the part to his bomb safe.

According to BILD information, it should be a Russian IP 5 filter cartridge for a diving device. It is completely puzzling why it was lying around on the Alster.

Police investigations are continuing.
