Two people have been killed in a stabbing attack on a train in Germany, according to media reports.

A man stabbed several people on a train from Kiel to Hamburg, German news agency dpa reported.

Officers arrested a suspect shortly after the attack, which the Bild newspaper said happened as the train arrived at Brokstedt station in northern Germany.

Police spokesman Juergen Henningsen said three people were seriously injured and four others lightly injured, but no further details were given on the identities of the victims.

The attacker was also injured and taken to hospital, with police saying he was between 20 and 30 years old without providing further information about the suspect.

A federal police spokesman in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein confirmed there had been a knife
attack with casualties, while police said an initial investigation indicated seven people were injured.

Schleswig-Holstein state Interior Minister Sabine Suetterlin-Waack later said two people were killed in the attack, which happened around 3 p.m. local time, dpa reported .

“It’s terrible,” Ms Suetterlin-Waack told German public broadcaster NDR. “We are shocked and horrified that something like this has happened.”

Brokstedt station was closed for several hours while regional police and federal police were on the scene, NDR reporting that the prosecutor’s office was investigating the attack.

Police have yet to release information about the suspect’s identity and said his possible motives are being investigated.
