Police investigate anti-Semitism links in Halle shootings

Shooter denies Holocaust in video of attack

Dressed in combat gear, the attacker was also wearing a helmet with a camera, which he used to livestream the attack on Amazon’s streaming platform Twitch.

During the 35-minute video, the assailant ranted against feminism and said that the Holocaust had never happened, as well as shouting xenophobic and other misogynistic statements.

The original live-stream was quickly removed from the site, Twitch said in a statement.

“We worked with urgency to remove this content and will permanently suspend any accounts found to be posting or reposting content of this abhorrent act,” the gaming platform said in a Tweet.
