Police find body in hunt for Zurich mosque shooting suspect

The hunt for a gunman behind an attack on a Zurich mosque which left three people injured has been suspended by Swiss police after the discovery of a body in the area.

Zurich state police said on Twitter that "we are working on the assumption that the dead person who was found is the culprit in the shooting at the Islamic Centre in Zurich".

Three people were hurt in the shooting on Monday at a mosque frequented by Somali immigrants.

Police are expected to hold a news conference later.
