Nine dead after gun attacks on Germany shisha bars

Eight people were killed in two shootings at shisha bars in the western German city of Hanau, police say.

Several other people were also injured after a gunman opened fire at 22:00 local time (21:00 GMT) on Wednesday.

In both places the clientele were reported to have been predominantly Kurdish. The suspect was later found dead at his home, along with the body of a second person.

The motive for the shootings is unclear. An investigation is ongoing.

Bild newspaper reported that the suspect was a German citizen with a firearms licence, and that ammunition and gun magazines had been found in his car.

What do know about the shootings?
The first incident was at Midnight shisha bar in the city centre of Hanau, about 25km (15 miles) east of Frankfurt. Witnesses reported hearing about a dozen gunshots, and at least three people were killed.

The suspect then reportedly fled in a dark car to the Kesselstadt neighbourhood and opened fire at the Arena Bar & Cafe, where five people were killed.

Shisha bars are places where people gather to smoke a pipe known as shisha or hookah. Traditionally found in Middle Eastern and Asian countries they are also popular in many other parts of the world.

The shootings sparked a seven-hour manhunt, while officers searched for what they thought could have been more than one attacker.

Why title it "Mass Shooting in Germany" as if the shooting came from an empty sky?

Title it this way: "White Supremacist Christian/Atheist Terrorist Shoots 11 People Dead".

It's an accurate description considering this was indeed a mass shooting :p

macron announcing that there will be no more foreign funded mosques and trained imams in france yesterday from a town close to the german border is very telling.
not very fun period coming to europe

I think he made a good call on this, one that should have been done a long time ago. Turkey refusing to agree to this decision is really quite telling as to where they stand vis a vis islamism.

Extremism is growing, and the Islamic extremism found in the likes of daesh is fuelling the other type of extremism around the world... it’s sad but true

That being said, governments need to protect the rights of their own citizens before they bend over backwards to accommodate refugees... we see it every day in Lebanon, the open borders policy is certainly not the best...

I agree, all the senseless killings the world has gone through have only ever led to more senseless killings, and the end result is nothing but death and destruction!

I think it's the same kind of extremism fueling both Islamists and far right fringe groups, one that is deeply rooted in hate and xenophobia and blaming strangers for your issues. It's never this person's fault, always the other, the stranger, the west, the muslims... and innocent people are always the ones paying for it.

Whose life is better now that 11 people are dead including the terrorist and his mother? This guy thought he was chosen to "save his people" same as all the terrorists who think they're on a holy mission from God, and ended up a lifeless husk like the people he murdered in cold blood. Net result: 11 deaths, a 24 page garbage hate filled manifesto, and a sadder world today than it was yesterday.
