Borussia Dortmund bus attack suspect took out five-figure loan to bet on German team's stock dropping

The man, identified only as Sergej W under German law, has been charged with attempted murder, causing an explosion and serious bodily harm after three bombs exploded next to the bus, leaving Dortmund defender Marc Bartra with arm injuries that required surgery and also injuring a policeman.

After questioning the validity of a letter found at the scene that claimed Islamist extremists were responsible for the attack, prosecutors have since said that the man being held carried out the attack for financial gain after purchasing shares in the club, hoping to sell them after a price drop at a pre-determined figure.
