Hanau: Germany boosts security amid far-right threat

Hanau: Germany boosts security amid far-right threat
Germany will deploy extra police to protect mosques, railway stations, airports and other sensitive sites because of a "very high" far-right threat following the Hanau killings, the interior minister says. Horst Seehofer said he had agreed the measures with regional leaders, to prevent any copycat attacks. Prosecutors say the suspected gunman, now dead, was "deeply racist". Nine people were killed in shisha bars in the western city on Wednesday. "The security threat from right-wing extremism, anti-Semitism and racism is very high," Mr Seehofer said. He called it "the biggest security threat facing Germany". Muhammed B, a wounded survivor, described from his hospital bed how the gunman took careful aim at the victims in the Arena Bar & Cafe.
