The Syrian man who blew himself up in Ansbach, Germany, on Sunday made a video pledging allegiance to the leader of so-called Islamic State, Bavarian authorities say.
The man threatened a "revenge attack" on Germans in the video, they said.
Germany's federal prosecutor's office has taken on the case due to "the suspicion of membership of a foreign terrorist organisation".

A Syrian asylum seeker who had previously tried to commit suicide has been cited as the man who was killed in an "intentional" bombing in the Bavarian town of Ansbach. Officials are investigating any terrorist links.

Police said in a statement early Monday morning that "a man, according to our current knowledge the perpetrator, died" in the blast outside a wine bar in the town where an open-air music festival was being held on Sunday night. Twelve people were injured, three of them seriously.
The man, who was carrying a backpack, according to Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann, had been denied entry to the music festival as he did not have a ticket. The minister said authorities were still investigating if the blast was an act of terrorism. "We can't rule it out," Herrmann said.

No, its because suddenly news outlets have to cover every possible incident that involves injury or death now. This stuff has been happening a lot, even when it seems quiet.

updated OP, even though german officials are saying it's 'most likely' a terrorist attack, everything seems to pretty much add up to one

it was already confirmed as one.
