Barely had the world recovered or recovering form the deadly killings in Nice, France, here comes another attack. This time in Germany, Munich, at a shopping mall on Friday night. Leading the global condemnation against the attack, US President Barack Obama has pledged support to Germany in wake of a shooting rampage at a shopping mall in Munich that left at least six people dead.

The US has also issued an advisory for its citizens in Germany, asking them to maintain a high level of vigilance and take steps to enhance personal security.

President Obama, who was briefed about the attack at Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping mall, said: “We don’t yet know exactly what’s happening there, but obviously our hearts go out to those who may have been injured. We are going to pledge all the support they may need.”
