Deadly ‘far-right’ attack shocks Germany

A gunman has killed at least nine people as he targeted customers at shisha bars in Germany on Wednesday evening, in a suspected far-right attack.

The attack sparked a huge manhunt overnight.

The suspected gunman and his mother were found dead in his home early on February 20. Police said there was no reason to believe there was more than one suspect.

The attacks took place at two bars in Hanau, about 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Frankfurt, where armed police quickly fanned out and helicopters roamed the sky looking for the person responsible for the bloodshed.

Police are trying to identify the victims. German media reports that those killed were likely to be of migrant background, while Ibrahim Kalin, a spokesman for the Turkish presidency, said some of those killed were of Turkish origin.
