Knife Attack By German ‘Islamist’ At Munich Train [VIDEO]

By

A knife attack by a barefoot man at a German train station early Tuesday has left one man dead and three seriously injured as authorities investigate what is said to be “an apparent Islamist motive.” Police said the suspect, a 27-year-old German citizen, reportedly shouted “Allahu akbar” as he launched his attack shortly before 5 a.m. at a small rural train station outside Munich. A spokesman for the Bavarian prosecutors’ office said the suspect “made remarks at the scene of the crime that indicate a political motive—apparently an Islamist motive.” Grafing station, the scene of the attack, is a usually sleepy part of the Munich S-Bahn network of commuter trains. However, German authorities told the Telegraph the attacker was a man known to have psychiatric and drug issues who had been seeking treatment for addiction, and officials at the scene said a container holding illegal drugs was found.
