I just reported what was said in the news. People moaning about the site should add better content to it.

Terrorism is in the UK has a twos-pronged definition. The mere causing of terror is not enough. Don't know about Germany (possibly similar applies) but the UK definition feels about right:

1. Act(s) of violence/property damage/hacking/endangering life to further a political, religious, racial or ideological cause
2. To influence the Government or intimidate the public

So the motive here was lacking.

I disagree...but, I'm not going to get into a big arsey definition of terrorism, when I'm sure we can all agree that planting a bomb near a bus full of blokes off to do their job is a rather c*ntish thing to do.

Fair enough, but that is the definition by statute. I agree it was such a thing to do.
