Ten people were killed after a gunman opened fire at two shisha bars in horrific attacks in the German city of Hanau.
Federal prosecutors suspect the shooting is an act of terrorism said Peter Beuth, interior minister of the state of Hesse.
The first shots were fired at a sisha bar where 3 people were killed. The gunman then drove to a second shisha bar where another 5 people were killed. One person later died from injuries.
The suspect is reported to have killed his own 72 year old mother before killing himself, bringing the number of killed to 10, excluding the suspect.
Victims of the attack are reported to be mainly of Kurdish and Turkish origin. One of the victims was reportedly pregnant.
Details has since emerged about the suspect, being named as Tobias Rathjen,
He had published a 24-page racist manifesto where he identified as an incel and also accused Trump of stealing slogans like “America First”.
The manifesto reveals that the suspect had a deep hatred of people from Afrian, Asian and Middle Eastern countries. In his manifesto he detailed his horrible plans for global ethnic cleansing.
In a disgusting sentence he wrote that he could “imagine halving the population”.
He also describes himself as an incel, and that he had not had a relationship with a woman in 18 years out of fear of the state surveilling him.
The suspect also claimed that President Trump had stolen slogans that he claimed to have invented, like “America First, Buy American and Hire American”.
Before the attack the man had uploaded a video talking about “secret underground bases” and he was also seemingly into alien abduction conspiracy theories.
He also claimed that his thought and actions have been controlled by mind-readers working for some “intelligence agency”.
The Mayor of Hanau where the attack took place said it had been a terrible night.
“You could not imagine a worse night. It will of course keep us busy for a long, long time and remain a sad memory. I’m deeply moved.” Claus Kaminsky told Bild.
German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer commented on the attack.
“The background must now be clarified further. Violence from right-wing extremists must not let us rest, we must stand against it”.
The attack comes only days after Germany police raided a far-right terror network suspected of planning attacks on politicians and foreigners.
Last year a pro-migrant politician was killed in Germany by a person with far-right links.
There was also a Neo-Nazi terror attack in which 2 people died in the Germany city of Halle last year. The attack took place at a synagogue and also a kebab shop.
