The President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Josef Schuster, called the synagogue shooting in Halle shocking and criticized the lack of protection of the synagogue by local authorities.

“We have not experienced an incident of this kind ever before in Germany. It shows that right-wing extremism is not only some kind of political development, but that it is highly dangerous and exactly the kind of danger that we have always warned against”, Schuster said on Wednesday (October 9).

He also called for a better protection of the Jewish community in general.

Two people were killed in shooting attacks on a synagogue and a kebab bistro in the eastern German city of Halle and one suspect was arrested, but two others fled in a hijacked a car, officials said.

The violence occurred on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the calendar in Judaism when Jews fast, seeking atonement.—Reuters

Mysterious oil spill contaminates beaches across swathe of Brazilian coast

Robie de Guzman   •   October 8, 2019

Slick from a mysterious oil spill blighted Brazil’s beaches over the weekend, as clean-up efforts get underway.

Reports of the oil spill emerged late last month.

Brazil’s environmental agency Ibama has reported that an analysis of a vast oil spill along the country’s northeastern beaches showed that the spilled crude did not originate in the country.

Ibama said in a statement that it had been investigating the spill on several beaches in some northeastern states since Sept. 2.

The spill spans over 1,500 kilometers (932 miles) of Brazil’s northeast coast, affecting wildlife and polluting some of the postcard beaches in one of the nation’s top touristic destinations.

A wide-scale cleanup operation is underway along the coast. (Reuters)
