Borussia Dortmund bus attack: Spanish defender Marc Bartra 'feared for his life'

A footballer has told how he feared for his life when his German team's bus was bombed last April in Dortmund.

Spanish defender Marc Bartra spoke at the trial of German-Russian man Sergei Wenergold, who admits setting off three explosives in a complicated plot to make money on the stock market.

Mr Bartra, 27, who suffered a fractured wrist and was in hospital for five "terrible" days, read from a statement.

"I was afraid I would never see my family again," he said.

He told the hearing in Dortmund of his nightmares, adding: "I still haven't fully got over the attack and continue to suffer."
