Take note – story published 7 years ago

Latvian officials on Friday and Saturday sent condolences to their German counterparts over the latest outrage to strike civilians in Europe.

Nine people were killed and more than 20 injured when a gunman went on the rampage in Munich before killing himself, on July 22.

Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis led the way.

Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis said he was shocked by the brutal violence.

Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics followed suit. 

Many other politicians and officials offered their condolences to Germany.

Some others wasted no time in posting their pet theories about the causes and motives of the attack, and assignations of guilt though German Police have yet to establish these facts. 

German police have however said that an 18-year-old of dual German-Iranian citizenship is believed to be responsible for the attack.
