German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer presented a package of legal measures in response to the Halle terrorist attack, while speaking at a press conference with the interior ministers of the federal states in Berlin on Friday.
Among other things, Seehofer announced an increase on security outside synagogues and the strengthening of the obligation to report criminal content by internet providers.
"We rely on voluntary action here as the hate that is being spread there often is an early stage of violence. I am glad that we could come up with an agreement on arms rights, that the update on the arms rights that has been drafted by the Bundestag will be tightened even more," he said.
He added that "the threat of right-wing extremism and terrorism and anti-semitism is very serious in our country" and "that's why we have to examine all areas where we can act preventively and repressively including the civil services and all its branches."
