There are reports coming in of three gunman killing six people at a Munich shopping centre. Few details yet. No word on motivation.
Munich police said they suspected it was a terrorist attack.
Authorities were evacuating people from the Olympia mall but many others were hiding inside. Munich’s main railway station was also being evacuated.
A Munich police spokeswoman said multiple people were killed or wounded. No suspects had been arrested yet, she said.
It could be a different kind of killer to the usual suspect:
Witnesses said that the shopping centre gunman screamed ‘I’m German’ and ‘f*** foreigners’ before shooting
Just one gunman, a teenager who killed eight people before killing himself.
Born in Iran. Motive still unknown.
Remember the sniggering at Pauline Hanson on Q&A about wanting to stop even five-year-old Iranians from migrating here?
And remember this caveat in my article last week warning that the more Muslims in a western country, the greater the risk of terrorism.
True, the number of Muslims in a country does not tell the full story.
Indeed, by some counts Germany may have even more Muslims than France, after an estimated 600,000 more crossed into the country illegally last year — though Muslims do still make up a smaller proportion of Germany’s bigger population.
Yet, Germany has until now been spared the mass murders suffered by so many other countries. Perhaps this is because many of its Muslims have come from Turkey, a country that is more Westernised and advanced than the North African countries which fed France.
But many of the Muslims who crossed into Germany last year did come from North Africa. Germany’s Justice Ministry said this month it was conducting nearly 120 investigations involving more than 180 terrorism suspects.
Since then there has been an attack on train passengers in Germany by an Afghan refugee with an ax and now this.
