One of Germany's biggest music festivals was evacuated Friday over a "possible terrorist threat," police said.
In a statement, police said they were in possession of "concrete elements, in the light of which a possible terrorist threat cannot be ruled out."
The three-day "Rock am Ring" event, held at an arena near the western city of Nuremberg, is scheduled to run until Sunday. It draws tens of thousands of people annually.
