“It is a dramatic act and a tragedy, which caused a certain degree of panic. We condemn the act,” Linkevičius said on Saturday.

The attack at a Munich shopping mall, which claimed at least nine lives, was committed a week after the massacre in southern France that left 84 killed and after an armed young man ravaged a train in Germany.

“It happens that the insane and ungrounded actions trigger a chain reaction. This should not be linked with Islamic campaigns. In any case, it is a terrible tragedy,” said the Lithuanian minister.

Linkevičius conveyed condolences to Germany’s Foreign Ministry, the victims and families of those killed.

There are no reports of affected Lithuanian citizens, he added.
