Attacks such as the one in a Munich shopping mall and at a nearby McDonald’s may lead mall owners to increase their security or even persuade global brands to focus expansion plans on the US rather than Europe.
Munich police chief Hubertus Andrae told a news conference early Saturday that the suspect was a dual citizen from Munich and his motive was still ”fully unclear.”
Munich Attack: A deadly shooting in Munich was a “disgusting terrorist attack” aimed at stirring up fear in Germany after France was targeted last week, French President Francois Hollande said on Saturday.
US President Barack Obama has offered full support to Germany in investigating the deadly terror attack that killed nine people in a busy shopping mall in Munich.
Local media reported that witnesses said the young man had yelled “Allahu akbar” (“God is greatest”) during the attack.
