HALLE, Germany (AP) — Questions are being raised about police response after an attack on a synagogue in the German city of Halle after a gunman tried unsuccessfully to enter the house of worship during Yom Kippur observances and killed two people nearby.

The head of Germany's Jewish community, Josef Schuster, called the absence of police guards as "scandalous" as members of the synagogue described waiting behind locked doors for the police to arrive, which took more than 10 minutes.
