BERLIN (Reuters) - German broadcaster ARD cited a report commissioned by investigators as saying there were "significant doubts" that letters claiming responsibility for an attack on the bus of soccer team Borussia Dortmund were written by Islamists.

Three identical letters printed in German found near the scene of the incident in Dortmund had suggested a possible Islamist motive for the attack.
