German mom, daughter facing eviction blow up house: police


German authorities on Wednesday said a mother and daughter are under investigation for allegedly setting off an explosion at their home in western Germany when police and a court officer showed up to evict them.

Local media reported that the 67-year-old and 38-year-old were both severely wounded in the blast at their home near Muenster. Two horses, which had been brought inside the building, were also injured and later euthanized. Three police officers suffered minor injuries.
