"We will not allow ourselves to be intimidated," Steinmeier said as he confirmed that the students and the teacher from Berlin's Paula-Fuerst school had died.

"(We) continue to stand side by side with our European and international partners against hate, violence and terror.

"It is difficult to put our grief into words," the Paula-Fuerst school wrote in a statement, adding that its thoughts were now with the relatives and friends of those who died.
