The attacker was killed by police as he attempted to flee the scene.
The motives of the man, who has not been named, are unknown, the Bavarian interior minister said. The refugee suspect “came to Germany as an unaccompanied refugee” and had “been in the care of a welfare organisation”, according to the interior ministry in Bavaria.
Following police search a hand-painted flag of so-called Islamic State has been found in the room . About 20 hours after the Wurzburg train attack ISIS has released footage with the attacker, identified as Muhammad Riad (pic), with a knife, in which he claimed to be an Islamic State fighter. Like in previous similar cases there is no proof Muhammad Riad was directed or instructed by I.S.I.S IT it is obvious he went through self radicalization and was inspired by ISIS
Investigations are ongoing.
