It has been reported that three Muslim worshippers are injured in a gun attack in a Zurich mosque. The attacker is on the run. There is a manhunt to capture the criminal.
the police have said that an unidentified person entered the Islamic centre, not far from the city’s main train station, on Monday evening (5:30pm UK time) and fired several shots at a group of Muslims gathered there for their prayers.
This alleged terrorist attack is not getting as much news traction in the America as the murder of the Russian ambassador to Turkey or the horrific incident in Berlin, Germany.
Al Jazeera reports:
“A man burst into a Muslim prayer hall in the Swiss city of Zurich on Monday and started shooting, injuring three men, according to police, who have launched a manhunt for the shooter.
A body was found a few hundred metres (yards) from the scene, an AFP photographer said, but it was unclear if it was connected to the shooting, which took place inside the city’s Islamic Centre, near the central station.
At around 5:30pm (1630 GMT), an unknown person entered the Islamic Centre, where several worshippers were gathered, and began shooting, Zurich police said in a statement.
He “fired several shots at the worshippers,” police said. “Three men, aged 30, 35 and 56, were injured, some seriously. The suspect then escaped from the mosque in the direction of Central Station,” the statement said.
Witnesses had described the shooter as a man aged around 30 wearing dark clothes and a dark woollen cap, witnesses said.
