Hundreds of people have gathered in central Vienna on Thursday, November 5, to honor those killed in the gun attack in the city on Monday, November 2. The event, organized by a political/religious alliance, is calling for an end to 'Islamisation and right-wing radicalism.' The event has been peaceful with no reports of violence or arrests.
A heightened police presence and associated disruptions to transportation are likely in the vicinity of the gathering in the near term.
Those in Vienna are advised to anticipate disruptions, minimize time spent in the vicinity of the gathering, and heed all instructions issued by local authorities.
