The assassination sent shock waves through Germany: A regional pro-migrant politician was shot execution style, on the terrace of his own home. Now, two weeks later, police have a suspect in custody — a man believed to be a far-right sympathizer.
Thousands of people have staged a counterprotest against a planned demonstration by a neo-Nazi party in Kassel. The rally comes several weeks after the killing of one of the city's prominent pro-migrant politicians.
The CEO of the large German firm shared the threat on Twitter, thought to have been sent by neo-Nazi extremists. The email mentions politician Walter Lübcke, whose murder last month was labeled politically motivated.
A suspected neo-Nazi's arrest in the German politician's murder case has focused concerns on far-right terrorism. A member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party, he supported her pro-migration stance.
