Munich police are hunting for three gunmen who they believe have carried out attacks at three locations in the city.

On Twitter, the local forces said shootings had taken place at Hanauer Straße, then the Riesstraße, and also at the Olympia shopping center.

Yet the local state broadcaster said there was only one location – the shopping centre.

Police described the attacks as terrorism, and said the three gunmen are believed to still be in the city.

Lynn Stein, who works inside the Olympia centre, told CNN a woman told her “masked gunmen dressed in black” had been seen running through the centre.

Germany’s Muencher Abendzeitung reported that the death toll was higher, with up to 15 people killed in the incident at the Olympia Einkaufszentrum shopping centre.

Police told another paper, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, that there were multiple deaths.

“There is a major police operation under way in the shopping centre,” Munich police said on Twitter, without elaborating.

An employee inside the shopping centre told the Reuters news agency “many shots were fired”.

Video shows people fleeing from the scene, which has now been cordoned off, according to reports.

Panic around the McDonalds

Our correspondent Zia Weise, who is from Munich, has been listening to Bavarian Radio, where a woman has given an eyewitness account.

We were in McDonald’s and wanted to eat something. We were queueing.

Then panic erupted.

The staff ran out and all the people followed behind them. Children were crying. Everybody running out in panic.

We heard three shots. Bang, bang… bang.

I didn’t see him. As far as I know this was upstairs at the Douglas [drug store, like Boots], we were downstairs.

Obama speaking now

We don’t yet know what is happening there.

Obviously our heart goes out to those caught up with it.

It’s a good reminder of something I’ve said over the last few weeks.

Our way of life, our freedoms, our ability to go about our daily lives, to raise our kids, to see them grow up and leave – I’m sorry, I’m getting too personal.

That all depends on law enforcement.

Obviously we have gone through a really tough time in the last few weeks, on a whole lot of fronts.

In recent weeks I’ve had the job of speaking to the widows of those police killed in Baton Rouge.

He is still speaking now, but has moved on to domestic issues.

Islamic State supporters celebrate on social media

(Reuters) – Supporters of the Islamic State jihadi group celebrated on social media a shooting rampage in a shopping mall in the southern German city of Munich on Friday that killed and wounded many people.

“Thank God, may God bring prosperity to our Islamic State men,” read one tweet in Arabic on an account that regularly favours the radical Islamist movement.

“The Islamic State is expanding in Europe,” read an Arabic-language tweet on another account also known to support the group.

The attack was the third major act of violence against civilian targets in Western Europe in eight days. Previous attacks in France and Germany were claimed by Islamic State and Munich police said they suspected the latest assault was a terrorist attack.

7:18pm

Lynn Stein was inside the shopping centre at the time

Lynn Stein, who works in a shop inside the centre, told CNN:

I was in a neighbouring store when shots were fired.

People started running. More shots were fired.

People were screaming.

Then I heard several shots at the parking house next to the mall. I went back inside the wall, to check on my co-workers.

When I went there there was a couple of people coming in towards me, and I told them to leave as I continued towards my store.

A man told me he saw a gunman.

I ran outside, and police told me to leave. Which I did.

This was about 15 minutes after it happened, and I was evacuated.

7:15pm

British witness Victor Wood, who lives in Munich, speaks to BBC

I was leaving the shopping centre from the side entrance and as we were about to go into the U-bahn, we heard shooting.

We couldn’t see where it was coming from – there was a building in between us.

When I got out of the U-bahn a couple of minutes later we saw all the police cars and realised what had happened.

The shopping centre is like a L-shape. It was quite busy – there were a lot of people in there.

We didn’t hear screaming but we were leaving from the side exit so it was hard to see what was going on. But local media reports someone coming out of the McDonalds and shooting a hand gun.

It took about four or five minutes for police to arrive I would say. We managed to get on one of the last trains before they closed the transport system.

Before I came out to Germany, I had been in the air force, so I am used to the sound of gunshots, and it was definitely shooting – you don’t hear that kind of sound in the city.

No one expects something like this to happen in their front garden.

I think Munich is well equipped to handle it though. Police presence is fairly low key, police officers have weapons but you don’t see people walking around with machine guns, for example.”

7:12pm

Three gunmen being hunted

Munich police are searching for three gunmen, they said on Twitter.

7:06pm

Second location under attack?

Munich police believe that a second site, in the centre of town, may have been attacked.

All very unclear at the moment.

Munich shopping centre attack: Video shows moment gunman opens fire at shopping centre

19:58, 22 JUL 2016 UPDATED 20:17, 22 JUL 2016
BY SAM ADAMS , SAM WEBB , GEMMA MULLIN
The busy city centre street is plunged into chaos when a man in a cap and sunglasses open fire with what appears to be a handgun outside a McDonalds restaurant
This chilling video captures the moment a gunman opened fire on innocent bystanders outside a packed shopping centre in Munich.

The busy street is plunged into chaos when a man wearing a cap and sunglasses opens fire with what appears to be a shotgun outside a McDonald’s.

Terrified bystanders, including the unnamed witness filming the scene, flee in fear as a barrage of at least 18 shots can be heard ringing out.

Six people have been killed and many more have been injured at around 6pm tonight, according to German public broadcaster BR.

Witnesses have reported shooting inside the Olympia mall with terrified shoppers filming the scenes inside.

Further video footage shows a man dressed in black with a red rucksack shooting from the roof of a car park.

Armed and armoured cops flooded the streets around the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum (OEZ) shopping mall in the centre of the German city, which has been sealed off.

It is unclear how many gunmen were involved but witnesses have reported seeing at least three different attackers.

Police told people to stay in their homes or to seek shelter indoors – and admit they don’t know where the gunmen are.

Munich police tweeted: “The suspects are still on the run. Please avoid public places.”

The force added: “Please don’t take Fotos or Video of Police Action in order to avoid any helpful Information for the suspects.”

In a second video, captured by a terrified member of the public, an unknown man is seen walking across the roof of the shopping centre’s car park.

Clad in all black, the man wanders all alone before he suddenly turns and pulls out what looks like a handgun.

ISIS-related social media accounts have been sharing reports of the attack, but reports in German newspaper Bild suggests right-wing extremists are responsible.

In pictures posted online, a person can be seen lying on the ground covered in blood.

Dozens of police vehicles can be seen lining the street outside the shopping centre, and a number of armed officers and a helicopter are at the scene.

A cordon appears to be in place and the area has been evacuated.
The shopping centre in the northern part of Munich is not far from the city’s Olympic stadium in the Moosach district of the Bavarian capital.

British nationals in Germany are being advised to comply with instructions from local authorities.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are urgently investigating an incident in Munich and stand ready to provide assistance to British nationals.”
Munich Police said in a statement: “At around ten to six today there were witnesses who called the police and said there was a shooting at the Hanauer Street.

“The shooting moved from that street to the shopping centre. The witnesses said there were three different people with weapons.”

NTV television reported that German police special forces had arrived at the scene.

“Many shots were fired, I can’t say how many but it’s been a lot,” an employee, who declined to be identified, said from the mall in Munich.

“All the people from outside came streaming into the store and I only saw one person on the ground who was so severely injured that he definitely didn’t survive.”

“We have no further information, we’re just staying in the back in the storage rooms.”

The shopping centre is next to the Munich Olympic stadium, where the Palestinian militant group Black September took 11 Israeli athletes hostage and eventually killed them during the 1972 Olympic Games.

Friday’s attack took place a week after a 17-year-old asylum-seeker wounded passengers on a German train in an axe rampage claimed by Islamic State.

Below are Senator Ted Cruz’s full remarks at the 2016 GOP Convention 

Thank you. Heidi and I are honored to join you here in Cleveland, where Lebron James just led an incredible comeback victory. I’m convinced America is going to come back too.

I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night.

Conventions are times of excitement. But given the events of the last few weeks, I hope you’ll allow me a moment to talk to you about what’s really at stake.

Just two weeks ago, a nine-year-old girl named Caroline was having a carefree Texas summer – swimming in the pool, playing with friends, doing all the things a happy child might do.

Like most children, she took for granted the love she received from her mom, Heidi, and her dad, a police sergeant named Michael Smith. That is, until he became one of the five police officers gunned down in Dallas.

The day her father was murdered, Caroline gave him a hug and kiss as he left for work. But as they parted, her dad asked her something he hadn’t asked before:

“What if this is the last time you ever kiss or hug me?'”

Later, as she thought of her fallen father, and that last heartbreaking hug, Caroline broke down in tears. How could anything ever be OK again?

Michael Smith was a former Army ranger who spent three decades with the Dallas Police Department. I have no idea who he voted for in the last election, or what he thought about this one. But his life was a testament to devotion. He protected the very protestors who mocked him because he loved his country and his fellow man. His work gave new meaning to that line from literature, “To die of love is to live by it.”

As I thought about what I wanted to say tonight, Michael Smith’s story weighed on my heart. Maybe that’s because his daughter, Caroline, is about the same age as my eldest daughter and happens to share the same name. Maybe it’s because I saw a video of that dear, sweet child choking back sobs as she remembered her daddy’s last question to her. Maybe it’s because we live in a world where so many others have had their lives destroyed by evil, in places like Orlando and Paris and Nice and Baton Rouge. Maybe it is because of the simple question itself:

What if this, right now, is our last time? Our last moment to do something for our families and our country?

Did we live up to our values? Did we do all we could?

That’s really what elections should be about. That’s why you and millions like you devoted so much time and sacrifice to this campaign.

We’re fighting, not for one particular candidate or one campaign, but because

each of us wants to be able to tell our kids and grandkids, our own Carolines, that we did our best for their future, and for our country.

America is more than just a land mass between two oceans. America is an idea, a simple yet powerful idea: freedom matters.

For much of human history, government power has been the unavoidable constant in life – government decrees, and the people obey.

Not here. We have no king or queen. No dictator. We the People constrain government.

Our nation is exceptional because it was built on the five most powerful words in the English language: I want to be free.

Never has that message been more needed than today.

We stand here tonight a nation divided. Partisan rancor, anger, even hatred are tearing America apart.

And citizens are furious—rightly furious—at a political establishment that cynically breaks its promises and ignores the will of the people.

We have to do better. We owe our fallen heroes more than that.

Of course, Obama and Clinton will tell you that they also care about our children’s future. And I want to believe them. But there is a profound difference in our two parties’ visions for the future.

Theirs is the party that thinks ISIS is a “JV team,” that responds to the death of Americans at Benghazi by asking, “What difference does it make?” That thinks

it’s possible to make a deal with Iran, which celebrates as holidays “Death to America Day” and “Death to Israel Day.”

My friends, this is madness.

President Obama is a man who does everything backwards – he wants to close Guantanamo Bay and open up our borders, he exports jobs and imports terrorists.

Enough is enough.

There is a better vision for our future: A return to freedom.

On education, your freedom to choose your child’s education, even if you aren’t as rich as Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

On healthcare, your freedom to choose your own doctor, without Obamacare.

On taxes, your freedom to provide for your family without the IRS beating down your door.

The Internet? Keep it free from taxes, free from regulation. And don’t give it away to Russia and China.

Freedom means free speech, not politically correct safe spaces.

Freedom means religious freedom, whether you are Christian or Jew, Muslim or atheist. Gay or straight, the Bill of Rights protects the rights of all of us to live according to our conscience.

Freedom means the right to keep and bear arms, and protect your family.

Freedom means Supreme Court Justices who don’t dictate policy, but instead follow the Constitution.

And freedom means recognizing that our Constitution allows states to choose policies that reflect local values. Colorado may decide something different than Texas. New York different than Iowa. Diversity. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. If not, what’s the point of having states to begin with?

Hillary Clinton believes government should make virtually every choice in your life. Education, healthcare, marriage, speech – all dictated out of Washington.

But something powerful is happening. We’ve seen it in both parties. We’ve seen it in the United Kingdom’s unprecedented Brexit vote to leave the European Union.

Voters are overwhelmingly rejecting big government. That’s a profound victory.

People are fed up with politicians who don’t listen to them, fed up with a corrupt system that benefits the elites, instead of working men and women.

We deserve an immigration system that puts America first. And yes, builds a wall to keep us safe.

That stops admitting ISIS terrorists as refugees.

We deserve trade policies that put the interests of American farmers and manufacturing jobs over the global interests funding the lobbyists.

And if we choose freedom, our future will be brighter.

Freedom will bring back jobs, raise wages.

Freedom will lift people out of dependency, to the dignity of work.

We can do this. 47 years ago today, America put a man on the moon. That’s the power of freedom.

Our party was founded to defeat slavery. Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

We passed the Civil Rights Act, and fought to eliminate Jim Crow laws.

Those were fights for freedom, and so is this.

Sergeant Michael Smith stood up to protect our freedom.

So do our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines fighting radical Islamic terrorism.

So did the family of Alton Sterling, who bravely called to end the violence.

So did the families of those murdered at the Charleston Emanuel AME church, who forgave that hateful, bigoted murderer.

And so can we.

We deserve leaders who stand for principle. Unite us all behind shared values. Cast aside anger for love. That is the standard we should expect, from everybody.

And to those listening, please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.

It’s love of freedom that has allowed millions to achieve their dreams. Like my Mom, the first in her family to go to college, and my Dad, who fled prison and torture in Cuba, coming to Texas with just $100 sewn into his underwear.

And it is love that I hope will bring comfort to a grieving 9-year-old girl in Dallas – and, God willing, propel her to move forward, and dream, and soar . . . and make her daddy proud.

We must make the most of our moment – to fight for freedom, to protect our God-given rights, even of those with whom we don’t agree, so that when we are old and gray . . . and our work is done . . . and we give those we love one final kiss goodbye . . . we will be able to say, “Freedom matters, and I was part of something beautiful.”

Thank you. And may God bless the United States of America.

All day, buzz was surrounding the highly anticipated Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas (A, 97%) primetime speech at the GOP Convention. “Will he endorse Trump?” “Will he orchestrate his speech for a 2020 run?”

But when Ted Cruz took the stage at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, everyone was silent, and it was all his show. But the speech wasn’t about “any particular candidate or campaign,” as Cruz said. It was about freedom.

Here’s the reaction:

Then came the big story when Cruz bravely uttered the phrase:“vote your conscience.” Having given a speech about foundational conservative principles, Cruz closed his speech without endorsing the GOP nominee.

Many praised Cruz for his “courage.”

Even Republican strategist Rick Wilson credited Cruz with a hashtag “strange new respect!”

The New York delegation and others, once they realized Cruz’s speech would not include an endorsement, shouted “we want Trump!” to protest.

But according to some “sources,” Trump’s team may have orchestrated that …

What’d you think of the powerful, eloquent, highly controversial speech?
