Ten injured in knife attack on bus in northern Germany

At least fourteen people have been injured in an attack on a busy bus, in a northern city in Germany, local media reports.

He was shot dead by Italian police in Milan four days later while on the run.

The Bild newspaper reported that 12 people were "slightly injured" while two other passengers were seriously injured due to the attack in a bus.

"The background to the crime is still unclear and the subject of the ongoing investigation".

"One of the victims had just given up his place to an older woman, when the attacker stabbed him in the chest", the paper quoted a witness as saying.

"There is now a major police deployment in Luebeck", the police force wrote on Twitter.

German police said there was no indication that the attacker was politically radicalised.

A police vehicle which happened to be close by was able to get to the scene quickly, allowing officers to detain the perpetrator, added the report.

Video surveillance footage from the bus led to suspicion that he wanted to set fire to the vehicle, thereby injuring as many people as possible and potentially killing some.

While the motive of the perpetrator has not yet been established, Germany has been on high alert after several deadly Islamist extremist attacks.

Several people were injured in an apparent knife attack in the norther German city of Lubeck.

Prosecutors said in a statement they had sought the arrest warrant for the man on suspicion of attempted murder as well as bodily harm and attempted arson.
