Officials say the men entered the café on Erlenstrasse at 8.15 last night and fired several times.

They then fled towards a nearby train station – very close to the German border.

The motive of the attack is not known – but locals told the Basler Zeitung newspaper the bar has had a reputation for drug use in the past.

Police are not releasing any further information at this time.
