Berlin police say they are not looking for suspects after Friday’s AquaDom aquarium explosion, alerting the public to what they say is a false tweet suggesting they are looking for suspects.
The aquarium explosion at the Radisson Blu hotel spilled a million liters of saltwater, flooding the hotel and surrounding streets.
Hundreds of fish died and two people were injured by falling glass.
Inspectors now say the building is safe.
A police source told local media on Friday that there was no evidence that the explosion at the 15.85 meter high aquarium was the result of a targeted attack.
They have also taken to social media to refute a post from a copycat account asking for the public’s help in tracking down suspects linked to the incident.
A tweet from the real Berlin police account said they were not associated with the fake post and asked people not to re-share it.
An investigation into the exact cause of the explosion is ongoing, but there has been speculation that freezing temperatures – which fell to minus 6 degrees Celsius overnight on Friday – may have caused a breach in the reservoir.
