German anti-terror prosecutors are taking over the probe of a deadly shooting outside a synagogue and at a Turkish restaurant in the eastern city of Halle, a spokesman told AFP.

Following the gun rampage in which at least two people were killed, the spokesman for the federal prosecutor's office said the step had been taken given "the particular importance of the case" which he said involved "violent acts that affect the domestic security of the Federal Republic of Germany".
