Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs Darragh O’Brien has condemned yesterday evening’s attack in Munich.  At least nine people are dead, and dozens are injured after a shooting in a shopping centre in the city.

Deputy O’Brien commented, “I am appalled by this latest incident, which has claimed the lives of so many innocent people.  My thoughts are with the victims’ families and friends, and those that have been injured in this horrific attack.

“I want to extend my sympathies to the people of Munich, and Germany, who have been left reeling and fearful in the aftermath of this senseless shooting.  We must stand together with our friends across Europe in condemning these atrocities, and work together to protect our communities from those who are intent on causing pain, harm and destruction”.
