ZURICH (Reuters) – Zurich prosecutors said on Wednesday they were ending a 10-month investigation into a December 2016 mosque shooting that left three worshippers injured, and that they had failed to conclude anti-Islamic intent behind the attack. The attacker, a 24-year-old Swiss with roots in Ghana, killed himself after the shootings at an Islamic centre near the main train station in Switzerland’s financial capital. Prosecutors said the man was a loner and suffered from personal problems, but that they could not determine hatred against Muslims was among his motives.
