프랑스에 이어 오스트리아에서도 테러...최소 7명 사망


   오스트리아 언론 보도에따르면 테러범들이 주요 유대교 회당 지역과 유대인 공동체의 사무실을 포함한 비엔나 중심부의 여러 지역에서 총격을 가해 최대 7명이 사망했다고 한다. 오스트리아 당국은 용의자 몇 명이 자정이 지났는데도 여전히 도주 중이라고 밝혔다.



세바스찬 쿠르츠 오스트리아 총리와 칼 네하메르 내무장관은 이번 사건이 다수의 가해자를 동반한 테러라고 말했다.


쿠르츠는 총격 사건이 발생한 지 몇 시간 후 "우리는 여전히 진행 중인 연방 수도에서 발생한 혐오 테러의 희생자"라고 말했다.


그는 "가해자 중 한 명이 무력화됐지만 여러 명의 가해자는 여전히 도주 중인 것으로 보인다"고 말했다. "또한 우리가 아는 한, 그들은 자동 무기를 매우 잘 갖추고 있는 것 같다. 그래서 그들은 매우 준비가 잘 되어 있었다.


비엔나 경찰은 여러 명의 공격자가 있는 가운데, 모두 6개의 공격 장소가 있으며, 이들 지역은 걸어서 10분 거리에 있다. 경찰은 처음에 1명의 사망자와 1명의 테러범이 사망했다고 확인했다.

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and Interior Minister Karl Nehammer both said the incidents were a terror attack with multiple perpetrators.


“We are victims of a repulsive terror attack in the federal capital that is still ongoing,”  Kurz said hours after the gunfire erupted.



“One of the perpetrators was neutralized, but several perpetrators appear to still be on the loose,” he said. “They seem to also, as far as we know, be very well equipped, with automatic weapons. So they were very well prepared.

Vienna police confirmed there were six sites of attack — all in the city’s first district, within 10 minutes’ walk from each other — with multiple attackers. Police initially confirmed one death and one terrorist killed.


Eyewitnesses said dozens of shots were fired in the area of Schwedenplatz, a square located opposite the Carmelite Quarter, where several synagogues are located. The assessment in the Jewish community was that the attack was not directed at Vienna’s Jews, however. Oskar Deutch, president of the Jewish Community in Vienna, told the Kurier news site that none of the city’s Jewish institutions appeared to have been hit. He said there were no casualties among the Jewish community.


However,  Kurz said the possibility that it was an anti-Semitic attack cannot be ruled out, given that the shooting began outside Vienna’s main synagogue.




The Kurier newspaper said at least one of the fatalities was a police officer. Reports said at least 15 wounded people were taken to hospitals in what is seen as the worst attack in Austria in years.

The shooting began just hours before Austria was to reimpose a coronavirus lockdown to try to slow the spread of COVID-19, and bars and restaurants were packed as people enjoyed a final night of relative freedom.


Police instructed the public to leave the city’s first district, where the attacks occurred. Cops were barring vehicles from nearing the area, Kurier reported.


Kurz called the incidents a “repulsive terror attack.”


“We will never allow ourselves to be intimidated by terrorism and we will fight these attacks resolutely by all means,” tweeted Kurz. “The whole country is thinking of the victims, the injured and their families, to whom I express my deepest condolences.”
