Germany: Shooting of US soldiers was solo attack

March 4, 2011 12:51

BERLIN - Prosecutors investigating the shooting of US airmen in Germany this week said on Friday the crime was the work of an individual and not a militant network.

"Preliminary evaluations and evidence show it was the act of an Islamist-inspired single perpetrator," prosecutor Rainer Griesbaum said. "There is no evidence at the moment the act was coordinated with others or that he was a member of a terrorist organization."
