say they will add security at other jewish sites around the country. and let's get the very latest karl nasa minister ending by for us and hala hi karl good to see you you were at the central market place there in the hollow where some people have gathered we can see there behind you tell us what the atmosphere is like in the city today. earlier there were hundreds of people here this square was nearly full with citizens of hollow coming to pay their respects to the $2.00 victims of that attack and as well essentially a show of strength and a show of solidarity in the city remember this is a community that nearly all of yesterday was essentially on lockdown people were told to stay inside their homes for much of the day there was a potential manhunt taking place the central train station was closed as well there was a lot of fear here people say essentially didn't know what was going on and now a day later we see this show of strength and a show of solidarity people coming here lighting candles leaving flowers and photos of the victims as well and one sign that we saw says our love is stronger than your
hates people coming out not only for those 2 victims but of course as well to speak out against what is being called an anti-semitic attack and they act of all right violence here and all are calling to go back a few hours when the interior minister abbas a whole far held a press conference let's play a clip now from that press conference he says we'll go live from yesterday's brutal crime has shamed a whole country into a constitutional. without history it would be should do something like this must not happen in germany. unfortunately we must look the truth in the face. and the truth is and has been for a long time. the threat level from anti semitism. from right wing extremism and from 5 right terrorism in germany is very high.
you see the whole ok so cross some very clear and also sober words there from the interior minister earlier tell us more about what was said at that press conference . the absolutely i found his comments to be very stark and very honest he really did spell out what he sees as a major growing problem here in germany he puts as one of the central threats to germany he said far right violence is on par essentially with islamic violence here in the country and they hope also promising sue invests spending more money in fact he promised a higher at least 100 more people to combat the far right violence in germany he said he wanted to directly tackle that problem also said that in terms of anti-semitism more needs to be done to protect the jewish community he promised that there would be stronger patrols and security presence in front of synagogues of course we found out late last night and we have been discussing it's
a day that there was no extra police presence yesterday on yom kippur war in front of the synagogue here there was simply one private security guard that had been hired by the jewish community here so lots of promises for more security for more investment in security in germany and an admission from the interior minister that the problem of violence is not going away in fact it's only getting stronger and karl is a city of hala recovers from what happened what is planned for the next few days. well as you can see that memorial still happening behind me tonight that's expected to be here in the central square for a few more days tomorrow there was talk at least at the press conference of a gathering a religious gathering at the synagogue botts with the jewish community and then in the coming days a religious ceremony also at the church that you can see behind me in the central square so it seems as if the different religious communities here in hala will be
coming together as a show of solidarity after those attacks. and with the latest for us in hala thank you. all germans across the country are still in shock over the violence and hala as we heard the attack was aimed at the city's jewish community and it fell on the holiest day in the jewish calendar kapoor earlier today germany's leaders reacted by pledging that the government would stand firm against racism and anti-semitism. the day after the deadly attack at the doors of halla synagogue chancellor angela merkel vote to fight extremism in germany. so i let you know it means 1st and foremost and for that i stand before you that the representatives of a constitutional state must use all the means of a constitutional state to fight hatred violence and contempt for human life mention there must be 0 tolerance toward the hundreds meanwhile in the emotion and tension will pop up will ask german president. joined
a jewish community in mourning. you can see the mountains history is a reminder present is a challenge and we must take sides on. days images were filmed yesterday by resident they showed a standoff between police and a month dressed income but shortly after a gunman killed 2 people need a city's synagogue. press there was a huge bang and then someone tried to get into the jewish cemetery he fired several times with a shotgun at the cemetery at the door. and then the woman came along the one who was shot she just came along from the tram stop quite by chance to synagogue was full when it was attacked young people the holiest day of the jewish calendar had brought together between $70.80 worshippers isurava axemen and americans freshly arrived in germany was one of them. i think the energy was was fairly calm given
the situation today i feel more kind of. just because people were killed but yesterday it was more about just kind of being really think for a kind of america that he couldn't get through the door and that like a much bigger tragedy was. didn't happen the synagogue door didn't open but the attack occurred then turned his gun towards passers by killing a not a man at a restaurant the suspect was captured by police outside hala he's a 27 year old german citizen in a video the alleged killer ranted against foreigners women and use india aftermath of the attack germany has presented a show of unity but many questions remain not least what could have been done to prevent it from happening. let's check in on some other stories
