In Germany, thousands of people joined vigils across the country Thursday, one day after a racist far-right gunman shot and killed 10 people, most of them at a shisha bar and a cafe in the Frankfurt suburb of Hanau. It was the deadliest in a series of far-right and neo-Nazi attacks in Germany in recent months. Early press accounts said the shooter used a high-powered rifle, but German media are now saying the murder weapon was a 9-millimeter Glock semiautomatic pistol — one of several firearms the 43-year-old gunman purchased legally online. The attack prompted calls for Germany to strengthen its gun laws, which allow civilians to register for a weapons possession card.
