German police are investigating a series of firework attacks targeting Ikea stores in Kiel and Dresden in the past week, following similar incidents in branches of the Swedish furniture company in France, Belgium and Holland last month.
On Wednesday evening the Ikea in Kiel, northern Germany, was evacuated after store workers discovered a suspicious “mobile device”. No one was hurt and no bomb was found, said an Ikea spokeswoman in Sweden. “Security has been increased in all stores,” she said.
