Munich attack: India stands with Germany, says Vice Prez

New Delhi, July 23 : Vice President Mohammad Hamid Ansari on Saturday condoled the shooting at a shopping centre in Munich and said India stands with the people and government of Germany. "I am deeply shocked at the shooting at Munich shopping centre in Germany yesterday. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those whose loved ones have been killed," he said in a statement. "I join the nation in praying for the bereaved families and early recovery of the injured," he added. As many as nine people were killed and 21 others injured when a gunman went on a shooting rampage in a mall in Munich, Germany, on Friday. Munich went into lockdown after the teenager opened fire on diners at a McDonald's restaurant before moving to a nearby shopping mall. The video apparently shot outside the restaurant showed passersby fleeing in terror as a gunman with a pistol surveyed the street before calmly and indiscriminately opening fire.
