The attack in Munich came just eight days after a heavy truck crushed over 80 people to death during the Bastille Day celebrations in France's resort city of Nice. Thirty-five people were killed in twin attacks at the airport and a metro railway station in Belgium's capital Brussels in March this year. A few days ago, a youth had carried out an attack with an axe on a train in Wurzburg in south-central Germany injuring four persons. The endless attacks across Europe has raised serious questions on the continent's security.
