    The German State Criminal Police Office (LKA) said in a statement that they believe the attack on Thursday night to be politically motivated, but would not give details.

    A police spokesman said that the nature of the explosion was initially unclear and that no one had been injured, Die Welt reported.

    Three German men aged 29, 32 and 50, from the far-left extremist scene in Dresden, were arrested in connection to the attack the LKA said on Friday.

    A police spokesman confirmed that although they suspect a political motivation, they were still unsure of what the connection was. According to the Chemnitz prosecutor, there is not enough evidence currently to keep them in custody and they could be released in the coming days.

    The LKA would not reveal what kind of explosives were used in the attack nor the identity of the three men arrested.

    The AfD in the Saxony state parliament said the bombing was a prime example of left-wing extremism, adding that left-wing violence “was getting worse and worse in Saxony”.

    The anti-immigration party was elected to the Saxony parliament, but has been targetted in a total of 80 attacks on offices and members’ private homes, it said. German Antifa extremists have even released a booklet which encourages “riot tourists” to burn cars and attack war memorials.

    An AfD spokesman told Breitbart London that the party had in fact been subject to 669 criminal attacks of various kinds.

    The bombing was also condemned by Saxony Deputy Prime Minister Martin Dulig, a member of the Social Democrats, who said, “violence does not belong to the means of democracy. The AfD must be fought politically and not with explosives”. He said the bombing only “helped” the AfD.

    German Antifa members were caught in Mrch last year in an undercover police sting operation in Thuringia, where they were stockpiling chemicals and high explosives in what was described as a “mobile bomb factory”.
