Merkel, Juncker condemn Halle shooting

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker condemned today's shooting which happened in Halle and expressed condolences to the family of the victims.

The attack, which happened earlier today outside a synagogue in Germany's fifth-largest city, is still being investigated by the authorities. One gunman has been arrested while at least one other is on the run, the police reported.

While the reasons for the attack are unknown, German authorities suspect far-right and anti-Semitic motives may be behind it, according to a security official.
