Alert before the Germany match, a suspicious bag is found

Germany will debut in Euro 2024 tonight at 21:00, at the "Allianz Arena" against Scotland.

Many fans have gone to Berlin, where a fan zone has been set up in a facility resembling the Olympiastadion, clearly in miniature, in the area near the Reichstag building.

However, in the last few minutes the area has been cleared. Reason? A suspicious backpack is found by the police. One person has already been arrested and is under investigation.

"As a precautionary measure, a restricted area has been established. The bag is now being examined. It could also be that someone did not take it to the ventilator area because the backpack is larger than the allowed A4 format," said the police spokesperson.

The fan area was not completely cleared, but three of the four entrances were closed and the entire area was cordoned off.
