Several injured after knife attack on German train – .


A biker armed with a knife went on a rampage aboard an express train in Germany, cutting and injuring several people, police said.

A man was arrested in connection with the attack on Saturday morning, which occurred on one of Germany’s ICE high-speed trains at a station in the southern municipality of Seubersdorf.

At least three people were seriously injured, according to reports.

The train was traveling between the Bavarian cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg when the attack took place around 9 a.m., according to the Associated Press.

Train travel between the two cities has been suspended pending an investigation.

About 200 people were escorted from the train and taken to a local restaurant for refreshments, according to German broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk.

According to the Associated Press, German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said it was still unclear what led to the “terrible” attack.

“I hope the injured and those who have witnessed this recover quickly and fully,” Seehofer said.
