Ansbach bombing: Attacker was rejected Syrian asylum seeker


Just two days after a gunman killed nine people at a mall in Munich, Germany, the country was shaken by another attack, this time by an apparent suicide bombing near a music festival in the city of Ansbach. Officials say a 27-year-old Syrian who had been denied asylum blew himself up Sunday after security workers barred him from entering the festival. Twelve people were injured, three of them seriously. Officials said the bomber's request for asylum was rejected a year ago but he was allowed to remain in Germany because of the strife in Syria. (Run time: 0:35)
