Germany’s leaders are promising a strong response to the latest racially-motivated attacks.
A gunman killed nine people at two shisha cafes on Wednesdy night in the city of Hanau.
He chose places that are popular with the Turkish and Kurdish communities.
The 43-year old suspect had posted documents with racist and far-right views online.
