Seven Injured in Dusseldorf Train Station by Axe-Wielding Man

The man is from former Yugoslavia and was found to be mentally unbalanced.
  • An axe-wielding attacker suffering from mental health problems injured seven people at the main train station in the German city of Dusseldorf.
  • Previously, police claimed that several attackers were involved and two people were arrested, but later claimed there was only one suspect – a 36-year-old man from former Yogoslavia.
  • The attack happened around 8.50 pm. While trying to escape, the man jumped from a bridge and suffered serious injuries from the fall.
  • German authorities have been on alert for terror attacks, especially since an assault claimed by ISIS in December when a hijacked truck ploughed into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people.
