One city. Three suspected gunmen. At least nine people dead. Those are the horrifying facts that have emerged from Friday evening’s shooting rampage at a Munich mall. With up to three perpetrators on the loose, police have shut down all public transport and advised residents to stay at home. Police are currently scouring the city for the gunmen and have drafted in support from Austrian police forces as they expand their search near the Austrian border.
In the hours and days ahead Germans will seek comfort in each other and, no doubt, in music. With that in mind we’ve gathered social media reaction from Eurovision stars.
