    It's terrible what is happening in the world. Sky news UK is saying 4 people seriously injured and a number of other passengers injured. Conflicting reports suspect has been shot dead. Police operation is ongoing.

    CNN - suspect has used an axe and a knife in attack.

    The Bavarian Interior Ministry has now confirmed the attacker shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is great) before hacking at passengers.

    The 17-year-old boy unleashed the attack on board a waiting train and was shot by police on a road outside the station.

    An official has said the incident was ‘probably’ linked to Islamic extremism."

    17 year old refugee, arrived in Germany unaccompanied. Had been living in a German foster family since two weeks.
    Attacked passengers in the train with an axe, then went on a rampage tour through a village.

    I have asked reporters on twitter if this foster family has survived, no answer yet.

    Recently (around the attack in Nice) ISIS has threatened Germany specifically.


    Thank you Mutti Merkel for inviting this gem! plus the rest, who knows what is coming.

    OMG how terrible! These kind of attacks are getting frighteningly frequent now. Hardly a days goes by without another incident somewhere in Europe.

    I was just looking at German news reports to see if it was indeed a refugee, but I see now that greg already found confirmation. I wonder when he immigrated to Germany.

    Prayers that all victims pull through!

    ETA: just saw ZaZara's post, that he was in Germany for only two weeks. Wow, something is terribly wrong there - are immigrants not extensively checked first?

    He had been living with a foster family for two weeks. I don't know how long he was in Germany, but living with a FAMILY is a big step in the asylum process.

    Journo's on twitter now questioning if he was really 17 .... or only pretended to be.
