The Central Council of Muslims in Germany is condemning an attack with assault rifles targeting a mosque in the Saxony-Anhalt province.

Two people heard shots near the Islamic Cultural Centre in Halle, Anadolu Agency reported Monday.
Police discovered three bullets on the ground.
Eyewitnesses said a 55-year-old man opened fire on the mosque from his home in a building across from the center.
Police confiscated two weapons found in his home.
They also said the suspect did not have a criminal record and the investigation is ongoing.
