ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Flowers and candles were placed at Munich's Olympia shopping mall on Sunday (July 24) to pay tribute to the nine people who died in a gun attack on Friday (July 22). A German-Iranian teenager, born and raised locally, opened fire in the busy shopping mall, triggering a lockdown in the Bavarian state capital. The attacker was a deranged lone gunman obsessed with mass killings who drew no inspiration from Islamist militancy, police said on Saturday (July 23). Seven of his victims were themselves teenagers, who police said he may have been lured to their deaths via a hacked Facebook account on what was the fifth anniversary of twin attacks by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik that killed 77 people. The Munich shooting, in which a further 27 people were wounded, some seriously, was the third act of violence against civilians in Western Europe - and the second in southern Germany - in eight days.
