Breaking: Gunman attacks military bus at Frankfurt Airport, 2 dead

From the BBC:

Two US servicemen have died after a gunman opened fire on a bus carrying American military personnel at Frankfurt Airport, police say.

The US Air Force said two of its airmen died and two were wounded. One of the dead is said to have been the driver.

A 21-year-old man from Kosovo was held after the shooting in front of Terminal 2 at Europe’s second-biggest airport.

The Frankfurt Airport is near the US base at Ramstein. Please keep these soldiers and their families in your prayers as more information comes in.

UPDATE: Jim Hoft has more…the shooter has been identified as Arif Uka, from the northern Kosovo town of Mitrovica. And he shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the attack. Who’ll take the bet that Obama will now say this isn’t a terrorist attack against America?
