Six people have been confirmed dead by the police but German media is putting the number at eight, at the moment.

It is the second terror attack on German soil, the first barely one week old, when a 17 year-old Afghan refugee, who pledged allegiance to ISIS, wounded four people in an axe attack in a regional train in Wurzburg, also in Southern Germany.
