The man who this Friday attacked with a knife the passengers of a bus in Germany causing a dozen of wounded ones appeared today before the judge, informed a spokesman of the Police.
The aggressor, 34 years old and born in Iran although with German nationality, is accused of damaging a total of ten people who were traveling on a public transport bus in the city of Lubeck, in northern Germany.
Three of the victims have serious injuries, the same sources said. The reasons for the attack are still unknown but the security forces contemplate all possibilities. For the time being, a terrorist motivation can not be ruled out, said the Interior Minister of the Schleswig-Holstein region, to which Lübeck belongs, the conservative Hans-Joachim Grote.
The bus was heading from Lübeck to the seaside resort of Travemünde, next to the Baltic Sea, where an annual sailing festival was inaugurated this Friday.
Eyewitnesses quoted by the local newspaper ” Lübecker Nachrichten ” said the bus was full of passengers when suddenly one of them threw down his backpack, pulled out a knife or sharp object and began attacking close range.
The driver immediately stopped the vehicle and opened the doors so that people could flee. Artificers of the Police arrived at the place to check the smoky backpack that the aggressor had left on the bus.
According to Grote, the first analysis showed that it was a flammable substance, but not an explosive.
