Two killed in shooting in front of German synagogue

This is the moment a gunman fires outside a German synagogue on the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.

Two people are people dead.

A second shooter can also be seen walking down the street.

The shooting happened in the eastern German city of Halle.

According to German media a hand grenade was also thrown into a Jewish cemetery and shots fired into a kebab bistro.

Police say they are looking for suspects who fled the scene and are asking citizens to remain in their homes.

The mayor of a nearby German town said the two people suspects hijacked a car and were on a motorway that leads to Munich.

A second shooting incident was reported in nearby Landsberg.

The attack happened on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism, when Jews fast for more than 24 hours, seeking atonement.

National rail operator Deutsche Bahn said the main train station in Halle has been closed.
