According to a new German study, museums, theaters, and cinemas represent a risk of contagion to the coronavirus much lower than that of other public places, however open, such as schools or supermarkets.
According to initial information, the association did not operate its own mosque. The members probably met in private rooms. The Berlin Office for the Protection of the Constitution had already reported some time ago about the trend that radical Salafists would increasingly no longer meet in mosques but in private apartments.
Interior Senator Andreas Geisel (SPD) announced further information at a press conference in the morning. The "Tagesspiegel" reported that the members of the small group knew each other from the Fussilet Mosque, which was closed earlier and in which Anis Amri, the assassin from the Berlin Christmas market in 2016, also frequented.
