Two people have died in a shooting near a synagogue in Germany.

Police, who are urging locals to stay inside, said two people were dead and that one person has been arrested.

The mayor of Landsberg, where police confirmed more gunfire was heard, said the Halle suspects hijacked a car and were on a motorway that leads to Munich.

The nearby train station in Halle, eastern Germany, has closed.

German newspaper The Bild is reporting that a hand grenade was thrown in Halle and that the attack happened in front of a synagogue.

Witness Conrad Roessler was interviewed on German TV channel n-tv television and said he saw a man with a helmet and military jacket who fired shots into the kebab shop the witness was in.

Mr Roessler said the man threw something that looked like a grenade and it rebounded off the doorframe.

We've returned from Yom Kippur to such tragic news coming from Germany.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their families.

The death toll would have been much higher had it not been for these doors.

Every British synagogue should be fitted with similar doors.
