    TBILISI, DFWatch–The Foreign Ministry extended its condolences to the families of the victims and solidarity with the government of Germany.

    Nine people were killed in a shooting rampage in Munich at a McDonald’s restaurant Friday evening, in addition to the gunman who apparently committed suicide.

    Twenty were injured, four of them from gunshot wounds. Three of the injured are in a critical condition.

    “The Munich tragedy is another signal that we all need to be more active and we have to act in order to prevent this brutality,” Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said in a statement.

    President Giorgi Margvelashvili expressed support for the German people and the families of the victims.

    “I am shocked by the horrific terrorist act in Munich which resulted in the death of innocent people. This is [an act of] brutality against our common values, welfare and security and we have to respond with unity,” the president’s statement reads.

    The Georgian Foreign Ministry called on its citizens in Munich to avoid crowded areas and call a hotline managed by the Georgian consulate if they have questions or need assistance: +491 62 88 55 303.
