In this undated photo publicly provided by police in Berlin on Monday May 7, 2012  three explosive devices are pictured. Berlin police said Tuesday May 9, 2012 officers found three improvised pipe bombs on the sidelines of a huge leftist protest march in an incident that a prominent lawmaker called an act of terrorism. The devices of about 40-centimeter (16-inches) each were filled with an explosive but were not detonated, police spokesman Stefan Redlich said Tuesday. An explosion of the aluminum pipes could have caused serious or deadly injuries within a perimeter of 10 to 15 meters (49 feet), he added. Experts are still investigating the explosive substance and do not yet know whether it would have burst the pipes into pieces, effectively creating a shrapnel bomb, Redlich added. The bombs were found on sidewalks during a rally of up to ten thousand leftists on May Day, but police officers initially thought they were just large fireworks and picked them up by hand to have them checked by experts.
