Mayor of Münster is shocked by the bloody deed from Send
“We hope that the perpetrator will be caught soon,” said Mayor Lewe when he arrived at the crime scene. This act moves him from the bottom of his heart. You can’t put up with something like that. In an interview with RTL reporter Ulrich Klose, he emphasized: “This broadcast is a celebration of joy and families, in spring it is a departure – and this event is a shock to the whole city.” When he heard about the knife attack, I he was initially worried it could be a politically motivated act. So far, however, this has not been confirmed. Festivals like Send are what make the community special. “And if people no longer feel safe there, if people don’t follow the rules and become brutal, then that is also a threat to our way of life.”
