Great news that bystanders helped.

I was imagining a sword or a meat cleaver. In the photos though it does not look 'long' or 'really big'...

Scary enough, though.

This was a few years back but like with a lot of countries, Germany has laws on the books to curtail a lot of these attacks, but they’re not enforced properly.

Why do some vote down this comment by GoodLuck above?

The suspect was in psychiatric treatment before the attack and had been known to police...

So why was he out of psychiatric treatment and what did the police do with their knowledge of him?

My condolences to the citizens of Wuerzburg. I traveled through the city three decades ago and remember the architecture of the city train station in downtown.

@ Bass, no laws - you keep pushing your agenda and everyone here knows it.

The guy grabbed a knife at a store and went stabbing. He's got a history of mental ailments and just by shouting "Allahu akbar" it doesn't make him an Islamic terrorist. Well done for the police shooting him in the thigh to incapacitate him (3 years police training in Germany seems like a proper training).

Bad enough he took the lives of the department lady and 2 more on the street.

The perpetrator survived so we will know about his motives sooner or later.

Merkel opened a can of worms with her immigration follies.

The fact is, the majority of terrorists in Germany, France, the UK, Denmark and other EU countries are homeborn ones. The American terrorist gets their hands on assault weapons like in Orlando.

People have converted to Islam and then gone on to become terrorists like the show bombers.

For many years we suffered on mainland Britain from IRA terrorist bombs financed by Americans.

Saudi terrorists crashed two planes in the WTC. A third into the pentagon. Another forced to crash because of the brave passengers.

Same old trope.

I understand. Especially where in Somalia 99.1% are Muslims.

This guy could have been a Christian conservative.

So what would, in your opinion?

Yes, there are millions and millions of peaceful Muslims across the globe including in Israel. The majority of terrorists in Europe are born there. There is a minority who are not.

Some people are Islamophobic. Like in

"Merkel opened a can of worms with her immigration follies."

The EU country which has suffered the most terrorist attacks is France, not Germany.

Terrorist attacks are not the concern of a single country. The picture is bigger and greater. All EU countries are cooperating to the max in sharing intelligence and resources to deal with the problem.

This is a terrorist attack that happened in Germany but also part of the greater EU and UK.

There can be no collective punishment, that is against international treaties and laws. Although in some countries collection punishment of Muslims happens daily. Demolishing a family house because one member committed an act.

Europe has a long history of terrorism. Islam is just the latest.

The posted link has nothing to do with Bulgaria. The authors are from many countries.

Some people post simplistic answers to difficult problems.

Terrorist attacks are not the concern of a single country. The picture is bigger and greater.

But this article is about a terrorist attack in the single country of GERMANY.

No, this terrorist attack only happened in GERMANY, not in part of the greater EU and UK.

According to the article to which we are posting.

Sounds more like someone with mental problems than a terrorist attack. But anyway what do you think the German authorities should do about it?

Notes have been found that point towards schizophrenia, not terrorism. And to yous who keep pushing that dratted agenda of "dangerous refugees", let me point out that it was an Iranian refugee who took the greatest risk in holding the attacker at bay. Even the conservative-right Bavarian premier Markus Söder which has an agenda of "stopping immigration" was full of praise for the courageous young man.

who - Söder might be appalling but he's still a person, not a thing. Sorry about that and I wish we had a timed edit function here...

IS encourages loners with psychiatric problems to do unspeakable things, and often takes the credit afterwards.

He shouted the Arabic name for the one god. His three victims were all women.

This is, as per usual, a contrary, contradictory and incomprehensible comment from Zichi, who on a Monday will claim he is an Irish nationalist, Tuesday claim to be an Ulster Orange man, and on another day of the week say,"We on Mainland Britan".

What precisely are you saying?

BTW - If you insist on going into the past then - Ireland suffered many terrorist bombs financed and frequently organised and supplied from and by Britain.
