What began outside an Austrian synagogue ultimately left four dead. Terror again struck Europe yesterday, possibly terror aimed at the Jewish people. The Times of Israel reports on the terrorist shooting in Vienna that claimed four lives and injured more than a dozen:

Austrian security forces were carrying out a massive manhunt Tuesday for at least one attacker still on the run, a day after several gunmen opened fire at multiple locations across central Vienna, killing at least four people and wounding 15 more.

“We experienced an attack last night by at least one Islamist terrorist,” Interior Minister Karl Nehammer told reporters.

“This is a radicalized person who felt close to IS,” said Nehammer, referring to the Islamic State terror group.

Two of the dead were men and two were women…

Please pray for the families of those killed, for the recovery of the wounded, and for the protection of the police who continue to search for those responsible.
