Austria’s army will be protecting areas in the capital while the police focus on how to stop the terror attacks. Special forces units are in search of the assailants and other involvements. Countries around the world express their condolences such as France and the United States. President Trump wrote “our prayers are with the people of Vienna after yet another vile act of terrorism in Europe” in a tweet.
