Knife attack on a train in Germany: two dead, seven injured

“It’s absolutely terrible,” said Sabine Sütterlin-Waack, interior minister of the state of Schleswig-Holstein, who reported on the death toll, in the first reaction. “We are shocked and horrified that something like this has happened,” she also noted, according to radio and television station NDR.

According to the police, the man attacked the passengers shortly before 15:00 CET when the train was approaching the station in the village of Brokstedt. On the platform, people managed to overpower him and detain him until the police arrived. The suspect suffered moderate injuries and is now in hospital.

Bild’s server first reported that the suspect was Syrian, but authorities later said he was Palestinian. DPA wrote that he may have suffered from psychological problems and was not led as an extremist.
