    According to police reports, one person has been injured in an explosion near the bus of German soccer team Borussia Dortmund.

    Borussia Dortmund has confirmed the postponement of the UEFA Champions League quarter-final game against Monaco from Tuesday to Wednesday following a series of explosions near the German team's bus.

    "The match between Borussia and Monaco was canceled, the new date is Wednesday, April 12, 18:45 [19:45 Moscow time]. Tickets are valid," Borussia said in its Twitter blog.

    ​As a result of the incident, Borussia defender and Spanish international Marc Bartra was injured and taken to a hospital. The game was to be held on Tuesday in Dortmund and start at 20:45 local time (21:45 Moscow time). A trio of blasts shattered bus windows but it is not immediately clear whether the broken glass caused Bartra's injuries. 

    Fans are not pleased the match has been cancelled.
