Incident at Stuttgart Airport (STR)

Today at Stuttgart Airport (EDDS/STR, we need this for Global!) a SunExpress Boeing 737-800 from Varna (VAR) landed safely but came of from the Taxiway near the Runway. Passengers were able to exit the aircraft without any other problems. Flights inbound were diverted to MUC, NUE, FDH and FKB. The airport was totally closed for 4 hours.

Why did it come off the taxiway?

Why did the other flights have to divert?

It was too close to the Runway.

STR only has one runway. It’s maybe not very safe if there’s a plane close to the runway and flight operations continue normally.
