The Syrian immigrant “reportedly arrived in Germany in 2014 and had been granted a refugee status.”
A Syrian refugee stabbed several passengers on a high-speed train in Germany. Three commuters suffered serious injuries on Saturday when a 27-year old knife attacker went on a stabbing-spree on board the train between the southern German cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg.
The attacker was nabbed on the scene by the Special Forces of the Bavarian Police, the media reports say.
The Syrian immigrant “reportedly arrived in Germany in 2014 and was granted a refugee status,” the German newspaper Die Bild Zeitung confirmed.
In keeping with the narrative, the German mainstream media remains clueless about the motives of the young immigrant knife attacker. “The motive for the crime is ‘still unclear and will now be determined,’ the German public broadcaster DW News reported, citing the country’s interior minister.”
The “attacker appeared to be suffering from psychiatric problems,” the news outlet added.
The DW News reported the details of the latest knife attack:
German Federal Police on Saturday said there was a knife attack on a train in the southern German state of Bavaria, resulting in several injuries.
The train was traveling near Neumarkt between the cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg at the time of the incident.
The Bavarian Red Cross said three people were seriously injured. None of the injuries are thought to be life-threatening.
A police spokesman told BR24 public broadcaster that the details of the attack were unclear, but that police had received a call around 9:20 a.m. local time (0820 UTC).
A 27-year-old Syrian citizen has been arrested, police said later.
The train stabbing is the latest in a series of crimes and attacks in Europe committed by immigrants from Muslim countries.
Earlier this month, a 25-year-old Afghan immigrant desecrated a historic church in the eastern German town of Nordhausen. “The refugee, who already lived in Germany for 5 years, dragged all the pews outside, robbed the altar in its entirety, ripped apart the music and organ books placed in the cupboards and did not even shy away from [laying his hands on] either the crucifix or the statute of Jesus,” Die Bild Zeitung reported last Monday.
Last month, an immigrant of Somali-origin fatally stabbed British lawmaker Sir David Amess inside a Methodist Church near London.
Around the same time, a 37-year-old Muslim convert killed four women and a man in a bow-and-arrow attack in Kongsberg, Norway.
The attacks come as German Chancellor Angela Merkel is on her way out, and Europe is witnessing a new wave of illegal immigration. Unable to cope with the recent spike in illegal border-crossings, Poland and other eastern European countries are calling for tighter border controls.
With Europe once again failing to secure its outer borders, Afghanistan’s Taliban regime has threatened to unleash a new refugee wave towards the West. “Afghanistan’s new Taliban government has warned US and European envoys that continued attempts to pressure them through sanctions will undermine security and could trigger a wave of economic refugees,” the French news agency AFP reported last month.
