A stadium in Hannover, Germany was evacuated on Tuesday evening after bombs were found inside it.

According to Young Conservatives, an ambulance with bombs inside it was located inside the stadium, and a terror threat has been extended to the entire city of Hannover.

“The visitors (spectators), who were already in the stadium at that time, were asked to leave the stadium without panicking,” Hanover Police President Volker Kluwe said in a statement.

“We were re-routed on our way to the stadium and are now in a safe area,” German team spokesman Jens Grittner said on Twitter. “We cannot say more at this moment.”
