These threats were sent to the mayor of Cologne, Henriette Röcker, the mayor of Altena, Andreas Holstein and several other German politicians.
Unknown promises to "execute" them in 2020, if by the end of the summer does not receive 100 million euros in bitcoins.
The attacker also wrote that “purges” among politicians began with the assassination of the mayor of the city of Kassel Walter Lubke, who was shot dead in his own garden on June 2 of this year.
