Frankfurt airport shooting: Focus on terror theory
The suspect has been named as Arid Uka, 21, who is said to have been born in Germany to parents who moved there from Kosovo about 40 years ago.
He grew up in Germany and was apparently working at the airport.
Relatives in Kosovo were quoted by the Associated Press news agency as saying that he was a “devout Muslim”.
According to German newspapers, he portrayed himself as an Islamist on the internet.
He saw “himself engaged in Holy War with infidels”, according to Die Welt, while Frankfurter Allgemeine reports that there were rumours he had planned to embark on a “killing spree”.
German police said the shooting appeared to have occurred inside the bus, and the attacker seemed to be acting alone.
