At least two people have been shot dead near a synagogue in the German city of Halle. Local police said the perpetrators have fled in a vehicle, and a manhunt is underway.
Police did not immediately confirm local reports that a man had gone to the door of the synagogue and then shot at a passerby.
The Bild newspaper reported that the attacker used a submachine gun in the assault, and threw a hand grenade into the cemetery.
The attack came during Yom Kippur, a Jewish religious festival that sees observers fast and pray at synagogues to atone for sins.
