Germany is playing a supporting role in the fight against Islamic State
A man knifed passengers at a train station in the Munich area early on Tuesday, May 10, killing one man and injuring three, media reported, and police said they were investigating whether there was an Islamist motive to the attack.
A spokeswoman said police were checking witness statements that the man shouted "Allahu Akbar" ('God is Greatest' in Arabic) during the attack, adding that the perpetrator had been arrested.
Germany's ARD broadcaster reported that one man had died from his injuries.
Police could not confirm this.
The attack took place in the S-Bahn commuter train station at Grafing, a town about 32 km (20 miles) southeast of the Bavarian capital in southern Germany. Full story
