    Swathes of a German city have been evacuated after a bomb was found reportedly on a children's carousel inside a Christmas market.

    German police has confirmed special forces were deployed to Potsdam market to investigate the item which was handed in to a nearby pharmacy.

    A verified police Twitter account, Police Brandenburg_E, said the "IED suspicion has been confirmed" and said an evacuation was under way where the discovery was made.

    The post read: "The USBV suspicion has been confirmed. The affected area in the city center of Potsdam must be cleared! Please note our loudspeaker announcements!"

    In an update, police said the package had now been defused.

    The incident took place less than a week after ISIS issued a chilling call for militants to attack Christmas markets in Europe.

    Extremists are said to be circulating chilling posters via messaging apps that include the phrase "soon on your holidays" in English, French and German.

    I guess bollards can't stop bombs.

    I see our Kershaw is at his usual game again trying to besmear some Muslims.
    Nice way of hiding behind the gutter press with its fake news.
    The parcel was never found at a children's carousel. It was delivered by courier to a local pharmacy. It was not a bomb either. Just a box containing an old tin, some nails,some wire and a fire cracker. No detonator. Just a hoax.

    Way to go off half-cocked, Snake. It wasn't a hoax. Read the second sentence of the first paragraph.

    The problem we have is that everyone remembers the German Police initially claiming that the New Years celebrations in Cologne had passed off without incident which makes us suspect that if a Muslim terrorist attack is thwarted at a Christmas market they will likely bend over backwards to invent some explanation so as to claim it is not a Muslim terrorist incident.

    Its the "boy who cried wolf" effect - if you deny Muslims committed crimes that people can see they committed then next time you deny an incident is anything to do with Muslims no one will believe you.

    Surely it was a hoax, you monkey. The folks who try to extract some money out of DHL just used it as a tool. They did not want to kill people- they are after the dosh.
    At least you have the guts to post the real thing about the "bomb"- while our chief hate monger Kershaw prefers to stay silent!

    Did you do your research, Einstein? The device was ready to go and needed only to be armed. That's as close as you can get to having the real deal. Kershaw's posts are salient and most informative and if disseminating the politically-incorrect truth is "hate-mongering," then the majority of us are guilty as charged.

    It's 1,000 shitpots better than the digital diarrhea you post, Olli.
