“Knife rampage on German train leaves two dead and seven others injured,” by Rachael Bunyan, MailOnline, January 25, 2023:
At least two people have been killed and seven more injured in a stabbing rampage on a train in Germany today.
The attacker sparked chaos as he lunged at horrified passengers on board the train from Kiel to Hamburg shortly before 3pm, sending commuters screaming down the carriages as they tried to escape his onslaught.
The bloodbath came to an end when the suspect, a 33-year-old stateless Palestinian man according to officials, was tackled by cops and arrested on a station platform in the town of Brokstedt.
A police spokesman said the investigation into a motive was focused on ‘all directions’ including possible extremism or psychological problems on the part of the assailant.
Three of the seven injured passengers are in a serious condition following the attack, which was condemned as a ‘horrible act against all humanity’ by regional interior minister Sabine Suetterlin-Waack.
A passenger said people in his train carriage panicked when three hysterical girls ran into their carriage and screamed that the attacker had stabbed people further down the train.
The attacker is believed to have fled the train once it stopped at the station and continued to stab people on the platform before being tackled by police officers, reports Bild.
The 33-year-old knifeman has not been identified but he is believed to be a Palestinian refugee from Gaza.
He is also in hospital receiving treatment under police guard after he reportedly stabbed himself amid his attack on fellow passengers. The suspect reportedly had a temporary residence permit with him during the attack….
