DORTMUND, Germany — The police chief for the German city of Dortmund says it’s not clear yet who was behind the explosions that rocked a bus carrying the Borussia Dortmund soccer team and left a player injured.

Dortmund Police Chief Gregor Lange told reporters late Tuesday that police decided at an early stage that the soccer team was the target of the explosions and are not excluding any possible angles in their investigation.

A prosecutor says a letter found outside the hotel the team bus was departing from when the explosions happened “takes responsibility for the act.”

Prosecutor Sandra Luecke says authorities won’t give details of the letter at this stage, citing the ongoing investigation.

Borussia Dortmund’s match against Monaco was canceled and rescheduled for Wednesday.

Lange says officers are doing everything “to provide security and that will be the case tomorrow, too.”
