    Gun Attacks in Halle, Germany

    Germany gun attacks: At least two killed in Halle shootings

    At least two people have been killed and two others injured in shootings at a kebab shop and near a synagogue in the east German city of Halle.

    One person was arrested, but police believe at least one other may have fled the area in a vehicle.

    At least one gunman was seen wearing a military-style outfit carrying several weapons, witnesses say.

    Reports suggest there was also a shooting incident in Landsberg, some 15km (9 miles) east of Halle.

    The situation remains unclear and local residents in both areas have been told to stay inside their homes.

    Two injured people with gun wounds are having surgery at Halle's university hospital, a spokesman told AFP news agency.

    German federal prosecutors have said they are taking over the investigation because of the "particular importance of the case".

    What do we know about the attacks?

    A man was killed in a Turkish kebab shop, Halle police spokesman Ralf Karlstedt said.

    A second victim, who is a woman, reportedly died on a street close to a Jewish cemetery and synagogue.

    It remains unclear if the two attacks were carried out by the same person.

    Allegedly the shooter streamed the attack, like the Christchurch attacker.

    16.00 Uhr: "Schwer bewaffneter Täter mit Stahlhelm und Gewehr"

    "Wir haben über die Kamera unserer Synagoge gesehen, dass ein schwer bewaffneter Täter mit Stahlhelm und Gewehr versucht hat, unsere Türen aufzuschießen", berichtet Gemeindevorsitzender Max Privorozki der "Stuttgarter Zeitung". Es hätten sich wegen des höchsten jüdischen Feiertags Jom Kippur 70 bis 80 Menschen in der Synagoge aufgehalten.

    Die Türen hätten aber standgehalten. Der oder die Täter hätten außerdem versucht, das Tor des danebenliegenden jüdischen Friedhofs aufzuschießen, sagte Privorozki. Vor der Tür habe ein Todesopfer des Angreifers gelegen.

    Die Menschen in der Synagoge seien sehr geschockt gewesen. "Wir haben die Türen von innen verbarrikadiert und auf die Polizei gewartet", sagte er. Der Gottesdienst sei dann weiter gefeiert worden.

    Shooter tried to shoot open the doors of the Synagogue, which failed, also to break into the cemetary failed, apparently a handgranate had been thrown there, however.

    "People inside the Synagogue have been very shocked. We blocked the doors and waited for police." Then they continued their service.

    While a shot woman lays just outside their door... okay?

    A German named Stephan B., 27, has been arrested. There's still confusion about possible other suspects, two people allegedly hijacked a car and fled to the Autobahn to Munich.

    18.58 Uhr: Inszenierung ähnelt Anschlägen von Christchurch

    Die Inszenierung ähnelt jener der Anschläge im neuseeländischen Christchurch. Das Video beginnt mit einer Ansage, in der der Täter seine rechtsextreme Motivation darlegt. Anschließend filmte der Angreifer seine Verbrechen in Ego-Perspektive – unter anderem wie er eine Frau vor der Synagoge und einen Mann in einem Döner-Imbiss erschießt.

    18.49 Uhr: Täter übertrug Angriffe live ins Internet

    Der Täter übertrug seine Angriffe live ins Internet. t-online.de liegt das Videomaterial vor. Der Mann nennt sich "Anon" und gibt an, antisemitisch motiviert zu sein. Mehr Infos in Kürze.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Like the USA , Germany had become an immigration country ,
    and like the USA tensions are rising .

    The doors of the synagogue were security doors .

    Likely mosques now will get financial aid , too , to
    prevent attacks in future .

    Germany synagogue shooting: Gunman kills multiple people in Halle attack

    At least two people have been killed in shootings at a number of locations in Germany, including near a synagogue in the city of Halle.

    Local police have arrested one person but told people to “remain vigilant” on Wednesday afternoon.

    Shootings were reported outside the synagogue, where an attacker attempted to break down the doors, at a nearby Turkish kebab shop and in a town about 10 miles away.

    The alleged gunman in Halle broadcast his attack on the Twitch live-streaming video platform.

    Follow live updates here

    Speaking in English, the man called himself “anon” and announced himself as a Holocaust denier.

    “Feminism is the cause of declining birth rates in the west, which acts as a scapegoat for mass immigration, and the root of all these problems is the Jew,” he continued, while filming himself in a car before starting the attack.

    Investigators initially said perpetrators of an attack fled in a vehicle, and a manhunt was under way.

    “According to initial information, two people have been killed in Halle,” a police spokesperson said.

    “Several shots were fired. The alleged perpetrators are fleeing in a vehicle. We are asking the public to stay in their homes.”

    Halle police later said they were investigating “further information from the public” and urged people to stay calm.

    The number of attackers at large was unclear, but video footage showed a man wearing military-style clothing and a helmet mounted with a camera.

    Germany’s federal public prosecutor has taken over the investigation into the case – a move commonly seen for suspected terror attacks.

    The Independent understands it is looking into potential ideological motivations including far-right extremism, but has not yet confirmed the background to the shootings.

    Officials at a Halle hospital said it was treating two people for gunshot injuries, including a victim undergoing surgery.

    One victim’s body was in the street outside the synagogue, while another victim was said to have been shot at a nearby Turkish kebab shop.

    A separate shooting was reported in the town of Landsberg, about a 20-minute drive from Halle.

    Anja Werner, the mayor of Landsberg, later said two suspects had hijacked a car and were on a motorway that leads to Munich.

    Police have not confirmed whether the incidents are linked.

    The Halle incident started at around noon local time on Humboldtstrasse, which houses a synagogue and Jewish cemetery.

    Police did not immediately confirm local reports that a man had attempted to break through the door of the synagogue and then shot a passer-by.

    Some reports said the victim was a woman using a nearby tram stop.

    An eyewitness told reporters at the scene that he heard an explosion at the Jewish cemetery, and that he saw the attacker use both a shotgun and machine gun.

    He described the gunman being “dressed like a police officer” with protective clothing and a helmet, and said he fled in a Volkswagen Golf.

    The Bild newspaper reported that the attacker used a submachine gun in the assault, and threw a hand grenade into the cemetery.

    The attack came during Yom Kippur, a Jewish religious festival that sees observers fast and pray to atone for sins.

    A spokesperson for the local Jewish community told Der Spiegel that up to 80 worshippers were inside the synagogue at the time, but security measures at the building’s entrance “withstood the attack”.

    Heiko Maas, the German foreign minister, said the timing of the attack had “touched our hearts”.

    “We must all fight against antisemitism in our country,” he added. “In these difficult hours, my thoughts are with those killed and injured, their relatives and the police.”

    Local reports said a second victim was killed outside a kebab shop about 600m away from the synagogue.

    Conrad Roessler, a witness, told N-TV the man threw something that looked like a grenade, which bounced off the doorframe, before opening fire.

    “All the customers next to me ran, of course I did too – I think there were five or six of us in there,” he said. “The man behind me probably died.”

    Mr Roessler said he hid in a toilet as other customers attempted to flee out of the back of the takeaway outlet, adding: “I locked myself quietly in this toilet, and wrote to my family that I love them, and waited for something to happen.”

    Halle’s main railway station was shut as the search operation continued, and Germany’s federal police were increasing controls at land borders and airports to prevent any potential escape.

    A secondary school in Markranstädt, around 20 miles from Halle, was put on lockdown but police said the measure was a precaution.

    The attack came two days after a hijacked lorry was rammed into cars in Limburg, near Frankfurt.

    A 32-year-old Syrian man is accused of deliberately ploughing the vehicle into victims, who suffered minor injuries, and police are investigating whether the crash could be an act of Islamist terrorism.

    German authorities have also been attempting to combat a resurgence of right-wing extremism in the country, which has seen synagogues firebombed and vandalised in recent years.

    The country’s deadliest terror attack was at a Christmas market in Berlin in 2016, when a Tunisian migrant drove a stolen lorry into crowds and killed 12 people.
