After an especially bloody week, two more high-profile attacks hit Germany on Sunday.

At least 10 people were injured by a deliberate explosion in the city of Ansbach. Police believe the only person who died was responsible for the blast.

Details are still coming in, but officials say the attacker was a 27-year-old man from Syria who was denied asylum in Germany.

The attacks come on the heels of a bloody week for the country. A gunman killed nine people and injured 10 more at a mall in Munich before taking his own life. 

Police are unsure of the motive for the shooting but did say the gunman suffered from mental illness and had no known links to terror groups.

Before that, a 17-year-old Afghan refugee armed with a knife and ax injured several people on a commuter train near the southern city of Würzburg. The teen was shot and killed by police. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
