A mosque in Germany received a letter containing a death threat and a bullet, just a day after the memorial for the victims of the deadly right-extremist attack in Hanau.

The Röthenbach Turkish-Islamic Community Centre in the district of Nürnberger Land, in Bavaria, received the threatening material on March 5, announced the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs [Diyanet İşleri Türk-İslam Birliği aka DITIB].

A bullet was glued on a gift card depicting a pig with the message ‘You’re never going to be safe.’

The police have launched an investigation. The police announced that all measures were initiated.

In a Facebook statement, DITIB said, ‘Even before the terrorist attack in Hanau could be processed by our community, this threatening letter made us even warier, we repeatedly condemn all kinds of hatred and terror.’

On February 19 a 43-year-old man targeted Shisha bars in Hanau and killing nine people of foreign descent and injured another five.
