What would you have done if you were faced with a knife wielding Muslim attacker at a train station? Would you defend your life with deadly force or would you let him get away with it? Here’s what happened at train station in Germany this morning:
One man has died and several people have been injured after a man went on a knife rampage through a train station in Germany.
The man is alleged to have attacked the passengers at the station in Grafing, a town south east of Munich, southern Germany.
Three men are being treated for life threatening injuries following the attack at 5am (3am GMT) at Grafing Bahnhof station.
Police are looking into allegations that the man shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is great) during the attack, Bayerischer Rundfunk reported.
A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office said the 27-year-old ‘assailant made remarks at the scene of the crime that indicate a political motive – apparently an Islamist motive.
‘We are still determining what the exact remarks were.’
Local media reported that witnesses had said the young man had yelled ‘Allahu akbar’ (‘God is greatest’) during the attack.
The police spokesman said ‘a political background cannot be ruled out,’ adding that the man arrested was ‘not very cooperative’.
