Political motive in Frankfurt attack on US soldiers
Germany's prosecutor general on Thursday took over investigations into the fatal shooting of US soldiers at Frankfurt airport, indicating that authorities suspect the attack was politically motivatedб, DPA reported.
Cases are referred to the senior judicial authority when charges relate to terrorism and politically motivated crimes.
Police arrested a 21-year-old Kosovan-born man on Wednesday, shortly after deadly shots were fired on board a bus carrying US soldiers.
Two US airmen died in the attack, and another two were in a critical condition after suffering bullet wounds to the head and chest.
