Hanau, Germany neonazi massacre of immigrants

This 20 February 2020 video says about itself:

Germany shooting: Suspect posted videos online days before the attacks – BBC News

A suspected far-right extremist carried out the attacks on two shisha bars in western Germany, killing at least nine people, officials say.

Chancellor Angela Merkel said there were many signs the attacker in the city of Hanau had acted out of racism.

Federal prosecutors are treating the case as terrorism. Some of those killed were believed to be of Turkish origin.

Dutch NOS radio says that all people murdered (except the perpetrator’s mother, making the total number of murdered people ten) were immigrants, some of them Kurdish; including at least one woman, a 35-year-old pregnant woman.

The 43-year-old suspect killed himself, police say. He was found dead at his home along with the body of his mother.

Local media have identified the suspect as Tobias R, a German citizen. The Bild tabloid reports he had a firearms licence, and that ammunition and gun magazines were found in his car.

The attack comes amid growing concerns about far-right violence in Germany.

NOS radio reports that gunman Tobias R also attacked refugees from Arab countries on the internet. He wrote ‘certain nations must be exterminated if they cannot be expelled from the country. … Therefore, I said that the following peoples must be completely destroyed: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Israel, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, the entire Saudi Peninsula, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and the Philippines. And that would only be the rough cleaning. After that, there has to be a fine cleanup, which affects the remaining African countries, South and Central America, the Caribbean’.
