Brussels (dpa) - The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, expresses his shock at the "brutal attacks in Halle - on this day, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism."
"All Europeans must rise to the call to act in the face of growing anti-Semitism," he writes on Twitter.
"We stand in solidarity with the Jewish community on this day," he adds.
