'Several hurt' in stabbing on German bus

Kenny Thornton | 20 July, 2018, 23:40

Investigators found a flammable substance in a backpack aboard the bus, but no explosives.

At least 14 people were injured when a man wielding a knife attacked passengers on a bus in the German city of Lübeck on Friday.

The packed bus was heading in the direction of Travemuende, a popular beach, when a man pulled a weapon on passengers, local newspaper Luebecker Nachrichten reported. Authorities have not yet confirmed the suspect's motive, but prosecutors said they had not ruled out terrorism.

Police in the city, in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein, said a major police operation was under way. As the suspect left the bus, he stabbed people around him with a 13-centimetre (5-inch) kitchen knife.

It was unclear why the young man under attack, who wasn't detained, was singled out by police before Benalla intervened. The video-taker, Bouhafs, said on French radio, "The man on the ground was harmless and begged Benalla to stop".

He is not believed to have been politically radicalised and there were no signs of a terrorist background, said officials. "The perpetrator was overpowered and is now in police custody".

Five of the victims are still receiving hospital treatment. "For that reason we have, as the investigation now stands, no indications that there was a terrorist background to this act".

Police spokesperson Dierk Duerbook told Bild newspaper nobody was killed in the attack.
