German Chancellor Angela Merkel will convene her security council on Saturday to address the deadly shooting rampage in Munich, her chief of staff Peter Altmaier said.

Altmaier told on Friday that Merkel was being "constantly briefed" on developments in the southern city, where police say at least nine people were killed.

"The cabinet ministers concerned are on their way to Berlin," he added.

Beyond the chancellor and her chief of staff, the German security council includes the ministers for foreign affairs, defence and interior affairs as well as other top officials.
