German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she is “shocked, shaken and deeply saddened” by the attack, adding it would be “particularly sickening” if it turns out the attacker was an asylum-seeker who sought refuge in Germany.
Meantime, the leaders of Turkey and Russia say yesterday’s assassination of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was an attempt to disrupt efforts to repair ties between the two countries, which have backed opposing sides in the Syrian civil war.
The gunman appeared to condemn Russia’s military role in Syria before he was shot dead by police.
Today, Turkish police have detained a man who fired shots in front of the U.S. embassy in Ankara. No one was injured.
Security and terrorism expert Ross McLean will have more to say about international terror on Zoomer Radio’s Fight Back with Libby Znaimer after the noon news.
