German Chancellor Angela Merkel has addressed the country following the killing spree in Munich that left nine innocent people dead.

“We in federal government are in mourning with heavy hearts for those who will never return home to their families. To the families, the parents and children for whom today seems empty and pointless, I say personally and in the name of many, many people in Germany we share your pain, we are thinking of you and suffering with you.”

Politicians in Bavaria laid flowers at the site of the murders.

The killing spree comes just days after a 17-year-old asylum-seeker injured five people in Wuerzburg, also in Bavaria.
