One man has been killed and three others wounded by a knife-wielding man near Munich, with police investigating a possible Islamist connection.
The man attacked four commuters shortly before 05:00 (03:00 GMT) on Tuesday at Grafing station. One of the victims died of his wounds in hospital. A 27-year-old German man was eventually overpowered by police and arrested.
Some witnesses said he shouted “Allahu akbar” (“God is great” in Arabic) but the motive for the attack is unclear. The suspect has been identified as a 27-year-old German national, apparently from the Hessen area of central Germany.
An Upper Bavaria police spokesperson said that a “political motive” had certainly not been ruled out.
