Deadly shootings at shisha bars in Germany

People attend a vigil for the victims of a shooting in Hanau, near Frankfurt, Germany, February 20, 2020. A man suspected of shooting dead nine people in shisha bars in a German town before killing himself and his mother had posted a manifesto online including conspiracy theories and deeply racist views, prosecutors said. The presumed attacker - a 43-year-old German man identified as Tobias R. - was found dead close to a gun soon after the shootings, authorities said.
