Washington: US President Barack Obama
on Thursday said he is "saddened and outraged" by the shooting in
Frankfurt, Germany, that killed two Americans and injured two
others, and vowed to bring the perpetrators of this act to
justice.

"I`m saddened, and I am outraged, by this attack
that took the lives of two Americans and wounded two others,"
Obama said in his surprise appearance in the middle of the
daily White House news conference.
"I think the American people are united in
expressing our service to those who were lost. We are praying
for a speedy recovery for those who were injured," Obama said
as he promised that the US "will spare no effort" to figure
out "how this outrageous attack took place".

All the information are not available yet, the US
President said.

"You will be fully briefed as we get more
information," he said adding that the attack is a "stark
reminder" of the "extraordinary sacrifices" made by the
members of the military.

A gunman fired at US Air Force personnel on a bus
outside Frankfurt airport today, killing two airmen and
wounding two others before being taken into custody,
authorities said.
