The list of people suspected of being accomplices of a jihadist gunman who carried out a deadly attack in Vienna has grown to 21, prosecution spokeswoman Nina Bussek says.

The suspects, aged between 16 and 28, did not directly take part in the shooting spree in which five people including the attacker died last week, leading police investigator Michael Lohnegger told a press conference in Vienna.

Ten of the suspects have been been placed in custody.
