German authorities say the man suspected of the attack on a synagogue in Halle is a right-wing extremist with a clear anti-Semitic motive who hoped to encourage others to follow his lead. Its now thought the deadly attack would have ended with many more victims if the gunman's homemade firearms had not malfunctioned. A survivor of the attack said it was a miracle the gunman couldn't enter the synagogue. Gyles Beckford speaks to Germany correspondent, Natalie Carney-Gerçik.
