German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said that investigators suspect the perpetrator of a deadly shooting Wednesday outside a synagogue in Halle had a far-right, anti-Jewish motive.

"According to what we now know we have to assume that it was at least an anti-Semitic attack," Seehofer said in a statement.

"According to the federal prosecutor there are sufficient indications for a possible right-wing extremist motive."
