Parts of Berlin and Brandenburg remain without power, as well as the Tesla factory, after an arson attack at a substation in the Steinfurt area.

The factory has been evacuated and searches are underway, while police have located a counter tent next to the substation belonging to activists against Elon Musk's car company and bearing the words, "Here lies a buried weapon." At this time, the possibility of an explosive device is still being considered.

Last week about 100 activists from the groups 'Stop Tesla' and 'Robin Wood' arrived in the forest next to the Tesla factory and built 12 tree houses. Activists were to remain in the area until March 15 – on the condition that they do not light fires or leave litter in the forest.
