Two Dead As Gunman Attacks Synagogue In Germany

At least two people have been killed and two others injured in gun attacks in the east German city of Halle.

It is thought one suspect, who has been arrested, killed a man at a kebab shop and a woman near a synagogue.

Witnesses inside the synagogue say the gunman tried to force his way through the door, where dozens were inside observing Yom Kippur on Wednesday.

Videos from the scene appear to show the suspect wore military-type clothing and used several weapons in the attack.

He was wearing a video camera and streamed the attack online, according to the Site Intelligence extremist monitoring group.

A lockdown of the area has been lifted, following earlier fears that others were involved and had fled.

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has described the attack as anti-Semitic.

“According to the federal prosecutor there are sufficient indications for a possible right-wing extremist motive,” he said.
