A knifeman has set fire to a train in eastern Switzerland, leaving six people in hospital with stab wounds and burns, police say.

The suspected attacker, described as a Swiss man aged 27, was also taken to hospital after the incident near Salez in St Gallen Canton.

He had ignited a flammable liquid before attacking people with a knife.

Among the injured is a child of six. There was no immediate information as to motive or background.

Three rescue helicopters are at the scene. A major police operation is under way.

No fun, the tactics they all use don’t come from Mossad :
Just look at the real ROOTS of EVIL

Before al-Husseini, jews and arabs lived peacefully together.
Skorzeny is just the inventor of modern terrorism and teached it to al-Husseini troups and his young nephew which took a well known war-name : Yasser Arafat…

If Daesh endorses, they’ll prove they are really stupid : there’s no country as few implied and as much neutral as Swiss in world’s politics but as they have nameless bank accounts, they always can inquire to find who’s money it is an t’s very likely that Daeshbags hide money there… They may lose a huge amount!
