A 12-year old German-Iraqi boy suspected of having links to extremist group Islamic State (IS) tried to blow up a bomb at a Christmas market in the western town of Ludwigshafen, German magazine Focus reported on Friday, citing security and judicial sources.
The boy, born in the same town in 2004, was "strongly radicalized" and apparently instructed by an unknown IS member, Focus reported.
The suspect put down a backpack containing a self-made nail bomb at the Christmas market on Nov. 26, but the device did not go off because the detonator failed, it said.
A market visitor called the police after finding the backpack and specialists defused the device, the report said.
Barack Hussein Obama, the gentleman whose administration has allowed the entry of 10,745 Syrian Muslim refugees this year and 56 Christians * addressed this issue last August, when he mocked Trump for demanding vetting of individuals from Muslim nations before allowing them entry to the United States:
"Apparently they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America,” he said.
Obama added, “At first they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of three year old orphans.”
* “When individuals say we should have religious tests, and only Christians, proven Christians, should be allowed, that’s offensive and contrary to American values,” the president said.
