Guns are ruling the roost in the world. It’s become an everyday affair. Then US, France, and now…Germany.
A lone gun man opened fire at shopping centre in Munich killing several people and injuring many. According to local news reports a gunman ran through the mall near Olympic stadium, even as he went on a shooting spree firing randomly at people. He then ran away in the direction of a nearby metro station.
Europe is already on an alert owing to the string of attacks, and now this…The OEZ shopping centre where the incident took place is on a high alert, and the police authorities have been requesting the people to avoid the place. “Attention – avoid the neighborhood around the OEZ. Stay in your homes. Leave the street,” the Munich police tweet said.
A few days ago a teenage asylum seeker went on a rampage with axe and knife in Germany on a regional train. He injured five people, two of them are critical. Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere believed that the teenager was “lone wolf” attacker who appeared to have been “inspired” by the Islamic State group but was not a member of the jihadist network. In fact, his statement was made based on the fact that the man shouted Allahu Akbar three times on before he began the attack.
Soon, Germany may impose an upper limit on the number of refugees coming into the country as the assailant had arrived as an unaccompanied minor in Germany in June 2015. He had been staying with a foster family in the region of the attack for the last two weeks. A record 1.1 million migrants and refugees were let in to Germany last year, with Syrians making up the largest group followed by Afghans.
