German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere stated that he has ordered an increase of security at airports and train stations, in the light of the recent attacks in Germany, during a press conference in Berlin, Monday.

"What is very important to me at the present is to increase the numbers of police in public places. I have therefore ordered that the presence of federal police be increased at airports, train stations and public areas," de Maiziere said.

During the press conference the Interior Minister said, as well, that it is still early days in the investigations into the motives behind the attacks, and especially with regards to the Ansbach suicide bombing. He stated, "A connection to international terrorism, to the so called Islamic State, is in my view as equally unable to be excluded as is the existence of a specific instability of this personality, or a combination of these both."
