The AfD office building as well as two neighbouring buildings and two parked cars were damaged; fortunately, nobody was hurt.
According to a report published on the site saechsische.de, at the time of the explosion "a few flashes of light like the fireworks" were seen. Eyewitnesses also observed a man placing something in a trash can on the roadside just before the explosion. Furthermore, suspects were observed hurrying to a car and driving off.
Saxony's State Office of Criminal Investigation has started looking in to the crime, and is considering the possibility that the incident could have been politically motivated.
