Today, the Islamic State formally took blame for an axwielding Afghan refugee who went beserk on German passengers yesterday evening.

The Afghan teenager was armed with an axe and a knife, and attacked about 20 passengers on a train in northern Bavaria, according to local police.

Three people were seriously hurt and one person sustained light injuries before the attacker was shot dead by police, a police spokesman said on Monday evening.

Bavaria’s interior minister, Joachim Herrmann, said the attacker was a 17-year-old Afghan asylum seeker who had arrived in Germany as an unaccompanied minor and had been living with a foster family in Ochsenfurt, south of Würzburg, for “a few months”.

After passengers managed to alert the driver, the train was stopped in the Heidingsfeld district of Würzburg and the attacker initially managed to flee from the carriage on foot, Herrmann said.

A police taskforce that happened to be in the vicinity then pursued the attacker, shooting dead the teenager, who was carrying an axe and a knife when he had attacked members of the unit.

Asked whether the attack had an Islamist background, Herrmann said one witness inside the train said the teenager had shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the assault. The report was being investigated.

The man reportedly attacked passengers on the regional train travelling between the town of Treuchtlingen and Würzburg. Fourteen other passengers were reportedly in a state of shock and receiving treatment by specialists.

An ISIS flag was later found in the asylum seekers personal belongings.

Another false flag no footage of the attack, people love there phone thingies i have yet to go anywhere in society and not have people on social phones, and there are no pictures or movie footage really? Why all the false flags events France than Germany where next ? America does this every week with false flags it’s expected. Yet none of these countries commit to fighting ISIS.

Can you please stop quoting Al-Amaq so often ? The website is beginning to look like an ISIS mouthpiece itself.

Whenever something happens to a migrant, all are shocked and ask for prevention. The other way round – nothing.

Daesh would take credit if someone in the West farted in Obama’s general direction. This doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
