Germany deeply shocked by attack in London

The German public and German politicians are deeply shocked by yesterday's attack in London. Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke by phone to Prime Minister Theresa May in the evening to convey her sympathies and express Germany's solidarity with the UK. German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier expressed his shock at the "murderous attack", and that "in these hours, the German people feel particularly close to the British". Ambassador Ammon attended the candlelight vigil in Trafalgar Square on 23 March.
