Police helicopters are continuously on surveillance. To quickly deal with the situation, special forces have been deployed in a huge number.
Bavarian public radio reported that an elite border security unit GSG9 has left for Munich with several helicopters. Also, Bavarian PM Horst Seehofer have been reported to have a special meeting with security advisers.
To tighten their safety, the neighbor nation Czech Republic has increased its force to minimize the risk.
The security forces of Germany have been kept on high alert since a teenage migrant reportedly stabbed and injured five people on a train in Bavaria on Monday. This attack was claimed by ISIS.
The authorities are suspicious of such incidents in the future.
A man working at a petrol station in Munich told the BBC: “We see just ambulances and it’s like firemen and police but all this area is evacuated, all the streets.
“Now [there]are no cars just on the side of the streets. All of the streets are blocked. I see that the people are scared. Everybody are running around.”
Munich police said they did not know where “the perpetrators” were. “Look after yourselves and avoid public places”.
