Bomb attacks hit a mosque and an international convention center in the eastern German city of Dresden, police said Tuesday, adding that they suspected a xenophobic and nationalist motive.Dresden will host national celebrations Monday to mark 26 years since the reunification of East and West Germany, to be attended by Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Joachim Gauck.The second blast about 25 minutes later happened at the main venue for next Monday's festivities, the city's international convention center which also includes a hotel.German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said the mosque attack was "all the more scandalous" because it happened on the eve of the 10th annual meeting of the dialogue forum the German Islam Conference.
