After Hanau: How can Germany deal with extreme right-wing terror?

A shooter killed nine people in the German city of Hanau in a racist attack. We spoke to anti-terror experts to find out how Germany is reacting and what we can learn.

It started out like any other Wednesday night as groups of friends gathered to socialize. But it ended in tragedy in Hanau when a gunman with suspected far-right beliefs opened fire on two shisha bars in the German city near Frankfurt.

Nine people, all believed to be of foreign descent, were killed in the shootings which began at 10pm.

Turkish state news agency Anadolu reported that five Turkish nationals were among those killed in the shootings. Some of the other victims are reportedly of Kurdish origin.
According to German daily Bild one of the victims was a 35-year-old mother-of-two.

The body of the suspected gunman was later found by police at his home along with the body of his 72-year-old mother. Both were killed by shot wounds in what appeared to be a murder-suicide.

Germany anti-terror prosecutors said they suspected “a xenophobic motive” behind the shootings, the latest deadly attack blamed on the far-right in Germany.

  1. waiting for Somi Tempo to tell us which bible verses should be erased in order to stop such Christian terror

  2. You know that Rafiq—the Far Right terror is not based on Bible— not like Muslim Terror. Muslim terror act in the name of Islam clearly—

    As long as there are Muslim terror groups— the far right group will retaliate the Muslim Supremacy ( isis ). Believe me.

    • bs … if I may say so. We taught you all about peaceful Islam. You just want to ignore it and pick out other things. When studying all the guys who went to become murderers of the so-called ISIS, none I read about went there quoting the Qur’an. They did not even know it. They went because they were promised that they can kill, rape, murder, get slave girls. Anyway. I am going to erase your future repetative comments on this subject (for a while at least).
