Herzog went on to say that he had spoken with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, "who expressed his deep disturbance regarding the attack on the synagogue in Halle, saying, 'This is an attack on all of us".
In May, a man threw molotov cocktails at a Chicago synagogue in an effort to set it on fire, police said. It said that the Halle shooting copy was taken down by a moderator after a viewer reported it through its flagging system. Law enforcement authorities, after initially speaking of multiple attackers, are now referring to a single attacker who has been apprehended.
Wednesday's attack appeared to be the first successfully streamed shooting since then, and the first real test for the Christchurch Call - an initiative set up by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron aimed at eliminating terrorist and violent extremist content online.
Shots also were fired outside the synagogue and at a nearby kebab shop, killing two people.
Frank said Balliet was motivated by "scary anti-Semitism, xenophobia and racism" and had armed himself with 8 pounds of explosives. Police did not disclose his identity, but, according to the media, he is a 30-year-old German citizen who was previously unknown to either the police or the German domestic security service BfV, which is responsible for fighting terrorism and extremism.

Most Jewish institutions in Germany are guarded - at the very least on holy days - but it is emerging that some synagogues in smaller towns do not have that security, with one police union suggesting that it was a question of insufficient resources.
"All the customers next to me ran, of course I did too - I think there were five or six of us in there", Roessler said.

Germany's domestic intelligence agency has said that the number of anti-Semitic acts of violence rose to 48 last year from 21 the previous year.
In the footage from all the design in which thru the shop, the shooter any other time recurrently misfires nevertheless hits one man.
"Our solidarity is with Germany's Jews on this Yom Kippur".
The head of Halle's Jewish community, Max Privorozki, was among those observing Yom Kippur inside the synagogue during the attack.
Borovitz added that Base Berlin is in touch with the family of one of the victims and are offering "assistance in any way we can".
