Organizers of the world's biggest beer festival, Munich's Oktoberfest, have raised security after extremist attacks in Germany last month, including banning rucksacks, introducing security checks at all entrances and erecting fencing.However, Bavarians are on edge after ISIS claimed two attacks in July, one on a train near Wuerzburg and one at a music festival in Ansbach, in which asylum-seekers injured 20 people.The Oktoberfest has its origins in the wedding in 1810 of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen.
