In the wake of the Yom Kippur synagogue attack in the eastern German town of Halle, the government's anti-Semitism commissioner, Felix Klein, talks about how to better protect Jewish people in the country.
Last week's attack on a synagogue in Germany has left Germans warning that anti-Semitism is on the rise. Federal and state interior ministers meet Friday to decide on protective measures for Jewish premises.
Hundreds of people gathered at a synagogue in Halle, Germany, to hold a vigil for two people killed in the shootings. The German justice minister described the incident as a "far-right terror attack."
The recent attack on a synagogue in Halle made headlines around the world and fueled concern of growing anti-Semitism and the threat of right-wing extremism in Germany. Who were the victims of this heinous act?
Interior officials have presented measures to fight extremism following last week's synagogue shooting. Proposed measures included extra protection for synagogues and fast-tracking investigations of anti-Semitic crime.
