Merkel was set to attend evacuated match

Fans at Hanover’s 49,000-capacity HDI Arena quickly evacuated the stadium, says an AFP journalist at the scene.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was set to attend the match in Hanover — the world champion’s first since their international in Paris on Friday night was interrupted by the blasts of suicide bombers outside the Stade de France.

Police have not given any details for the move beyond “security concerns.”
