Germany: One killed, four injured after knife attack in Hamburg supermarket

Single attack has stabbed one man to death and injured 6 others in a supermarket in Hamburg, Germany.

In one case of a homegrown attacker, a German teenager identified as 16-year-old Safia S. was in January sentenced to six years of juvenile detention for stabbing a police officer in 2016 to support ISIL.

- Who was the attacker? He then left the supermarket and continued to attack people before being stopped by passers-by.

He later wounded two other men in the supermarket before fleeing the scene.

Palestinian Leadership Freezes Contact with Israel over Protest Crackdown
The Palestinian was stopped by a neighbour, an off-duty Israeli soldier, who shot him, the official said. Access to the shrine for Muslims was limited to men over 50 but open to women of all ages.

And, of course, the Christmas market attack in Berlin last December that killed 12 people. "A person died. Assailant arrested", Hamburg's police department said on Twitter.

Torsten Voss, Hamburg state's chief of the Constitutional Protection Office, said the suspect was one of 800 registered Islamists under observation in Hamburg, but that he was so far not linked to any extremist network.

Police on Saturday said they had searched a refugee shelter in the Hamburg district of Langenhorn, where the suspect was believed to have been staying.

The 26-year-old failed asylum seeker is now being held on suspicion of one count of murder as well as five counts of attempted murder, spokeswoman Nana Frombach said.

Teen accused of DUI, livestreaming video of crash that killed sister
The Instagram live video shows Obdulia Sanchez driving in Los Banos, CA while listening to music with two girls in the back seat. A passenger is seen outside the auto , apparently waving for help, while Obdulia Sanchez kneels beside her sister on the ground.

A 35-year-old bystander was also injured while trying to detain the suspect, police said. She said she had no information that the attacker was known to authorities as an Islamist, as reported by the newspaper Tagesspiegel. They are not ascribing a motive to the attack now, with German media suggesting terror and robbery as possibilities.

It appeared that the suspect was facing deportation but this had not proceeded because he lacked identification papers, Scholz said. The Berlin incident was the last - and most deadly - in a series of assaults involving refugees that shook Germany a year ago in the wake of an influx of 1 million asylum seekers into the country in 2015.

"He was always helping other asylum seekers with their paperwork", his neighbour, who gave his name only as Mohamed, told AFP. The Germany police could not confirm witness reports that the suspect had shouted "Allahu Akbar" in the supermarket.

Germany is less than two months away from parliamentary elections on September 24 in which Chancellor Angela Merkel is likely to win a fourth term despite tensions about her decision in August 2015 to open the door to over one million migrants.
