An image of the 27-year-old Syrian man suspected of killing himself and injuring 15 others in an explosion in the German city of Ansbach has been released by Amaq News Agency.
The news agency is associated with the so-called Islamic State. Authorities said the attacker pledged allegiance to the group.
A teenager arrested in connection with the deadly Munich shooting may have known about the attack before it happened, officials have said.
The 16-year-old Afghan appeared to have met with the gunman at the mall where the shooting took place before the attack and knew he had a pistol, police said.
Investigators said the two teenagers met last year as in-patients at a psychiatric ward, with both being treated for online game addictions, among other things.
A spokesman for the German Interior Ministry said there could be a link between video games and the shooting and that there should be a discussion about "violent" video games.

A friend of the Munich gunman has been arrested over suspicions that he knew of the attack plans but failed to report them.

"There is a suspicion that the 16-year-old is a possible tacit accomplice to (Friday's) attack," police said in a statement.

David Sonboly, 18, went to see the south German campus where a former student killed fifteen people in 2009.
It has added to the picture of a quiet and disturbed teenager who apparently plotted his attack for months in advance.

A gunman who killed nine people during a shooting in Munich, Germany, had planned the attack for a year, the Bavaria state prosecutor's office has said.
A spokesman also said the victims of the shooting were not classmates of 18-year-old student David Ali Sonboly who has been identified as having carried out the attack.

The prosecutor's office also confirmed that a semi-automatic 9mm Glock handgun used in the attack was purchased on the internet illegally.
Authorities have not been able to interview the teenager's parents, the spokesman added.
