Christmas Train: No, I’m not a terrorist, I have a family
Christmas Train, the train that travels the world from New York to London, has been hit by a bomb.
It’s no longer an option, the owner of the train told CNN.
“It’s not a train that can be used,” he said, adding, “There’s a very serious situation.”
No one was injured in the explosion.
The train was traveling through Europe on its way to Berlin when it went off.
The driver of the other train was not hurt.
A police source said, “This was a terrorist attack, the one that hit the train.”
The Islamic State (ISIS) group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
This is not the first time a Christmas train has been targeted.
In 2016, a passenger train carrying a Christmas tree was hijacked by ISIS militants.
ISIS claimed responsibility.
The car was burned down and its contents stolen.
A Christmas tree in New Jersey was also stolen and then burned to the ground.
A Christmas train was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED) in the southern Italian city of Genoa.
No one on board was injured.
The Italian Foreign Ministry called the attack “unacceptable.”
It was the second attack on a Christmas carriage in Genoa in two months.
In January, a bomb exploded in a train carrying Russian tourists from St. Petersburg to the Austrian city of Würzburg.
The bomber blew himself up near a Christmas market in the German city of Heidelberg.
