#9 Deutsche Welle has the same information in English:

A police operation is underway in the German town of Heidingsfeld, part of the southern city of Würzburg, after a man launched an attack on a regional passenger train at around 9.15pm local time (1915 UTC) on Monday.

Three people were seriously injured and a fourth suffered light injuries. Another 14 people were reportedly held up in the train.

Bavarian Interior Ministry Joachim Hermann confirmed in a televised interview that the suspect was a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who had been staying in Ochsenfurt where he boarded the train.

The teenager reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar" before launching the attack using a knife and axe. He was shot dead by police in Heidingsfeld as he attempted to flee the scene.


Sudden Jihad Syndrome in the approved manner.

#10 From a tv interview with the Bavarian interior minister:

The attacker came to Germany about a year ago. His status was that of an 'unaccompanied minor refugee.'
