'Assassination attempt' on Angela Merkel - Mirror Online

It will be interesting to see who attempted to do this, a lot of bad guys from all sides are not happy with her now. Staying alert for this type of attack is a constant for any protective detail. If this had been a bombing, the attack vehicle only needs to get close to accomplish the task. I am not sure what other attack platform or type of attack it could have been. As I teach the ESI class next month, this is one of the attack vectors we will be addressing as well as parked vehicle bombs attacking motorcades as they pass. The latest attack using this method was in Egypt, and was not completely successful, but some of the protective force did not survive. Dealing with these types of attacks requires a knowledge of explosives and the targeting practices used.
