Authorities say a 43-year-old German who posted a rant calling for the ``complete extermination'' of various races and cultures shot and killed nine people, most of them Turkish, in an attack on a hookah bar and other sites in suburban Frankfurt.
Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that the shootings exposed the ``poison'' of racism in Germany.
The bloodshed comes amid growing concerns about far-right violence in Germany and stepped-up efforts from authorities to crack down on it.
