German authorities have increased checks and implemented tightened control measures at the Austrian border following a terrorist attack in Vienna that left four civilians dead and several others injured on Monday evening, November 2. While one suspect was fatally shot and at least two people were arrested following the incident in the Austrian capital, search operations are ongoing for further possible suspects and Austrian police are liaising with German federal officers as of Tuesday morning, November 3.
A heightened security presence and associated disruptions to transportation are likely at the Germany-Austria border.
Those in the border area are advised to monitor the situation and heed all instructions issued by local authorities.
