By Andreas Burger ANSBACH, Germany (Reuters) - The Syrian who blew himself up in southern Germany, wounding 15 people, had pledged allegiance to Islamic State on a video found on his mobile phone, the Bavarian Interior Minister said on Monday. "A provisional translation by an interpreter shows that he expressly announces, in the name of Allah, and testifying his allegiance to (Islamic State leader) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ... an act of revenge against the Germans because they're getting in the way of Islam," Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann told a news conference. "I think that after this video there's no doubt that the attack was a terrorist attack with an Islamist background." Islamic State claimed responsibility for the bombing, according to Amaq, a news agency that supports Islamic State.
