President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he is "saddened" and "outraged" by the shooting of a group of US airmen in Germany.
German police arrested a man after two US airmen were shot dead and two wounded in an incident on a US Army bus at Frankfurt airport, authorities said.

Security round the airport was tightened and an investigation into the "terrible, senseless crime" was under way, said Boris Rhein, interior minister for Hesse state.

"Whether the incident was linked to terrorism I cannot say at this stage," he told reporters.
The suspected gunman was apparently a Kosovo national, he said. Police said he was 21.
