The front pages of Saturday's Scottish papers are dominated by the gun attack at a shopping mall in Munich.

The Daily Record tells how at least nine people died in a "terrorist gun rampage" in the German city.

Munich is "under siege", according to The Scotsman, which says the Munich public were told to stay indoors amid fears that further gunmen remained at large.

The Scottish Sun says a heavily-armed man opened fire outside a McDonald's before "spraying bullets" in the German city's Olympia mall.

The Herald also features a front page picture of the Munich aftermath, but leads with claims that Britain is facing a new recession in the wake of the Brexit vote.

'Terror in Munich' is the lead headline on the front pages of both The National and The Times, as they describe Germany's biggest terrorist attack in 36 years.

The Scottish Daily Mail says Europe has been put on "high alert", as German police said it remained unclear whether the gunman, who later killed himself, was an Islamic extremist or a far-right activist.

The Scottish Daily Express leads with a manhunt being under way, with all public transport in and around Munich being suspended.

The Press and Journal says a state of emergency has been declared after the shootings took place on the fifth anniversary of neo-Nazi Anders Behring Breivik killing 77 people in Norway.
