Ikea takes additional security measures

Ikea will deploy extra security at all European stores, following the explosions in four European countries. The Swedish furniture chain claims to expect no more attacks, but wants to leave nothing to chance.

So far, it is unknown who is behind the explosions in Lille (France), Ghent (Belgium), Eindhoven (Netherlands) and Dresden (Germany). The German police has received several e-mails claiming responsibility for the last assault, but has made no statements on the matter. The Dutch police have already released a picture of a man, thought to be involved in the Dutch explosion.
