Hamburg supermarket attacker a 'known Islamist,' official says

On Friday, a man armed with a kitchen knife fatally stabbed one person at a supermarket in the northern German city of Hamburg and six others were injured as he fled.

The attacker, who arrived in Germany in 2015 but could not be deported because he had no identification papers, was also suffering from mental health problems, officials said.

The 26-year-old man, identified as Ahmad A, is a Palestinian from the UAE who is registered on an Islamist database, Mr Grote said on Saturday.

Police said he acted alone and he was overpowered by passers-by.

A friend had tipped authorities off to changes in the man, telling them that he stopped drinking alcohol and started talking about the Quran, said Torsten Voss, head of the Hamburg branch of Germany's domestic intelligence agency. Officers then arrested the assailant.

Police said on Friday the man was born in the United Arab Emirates.

European Union foreign ministers, at a meeting in July, had condemned North Korea's missile launches in similar terms. He said it was estimated to have traveled about 1,000 kilometers, or 620 miles, before landing in the Sea of Japan .

The assailant entered the supermarket in Hamburg's Barmbek district in the afternoon and stabbed one man, who died at the scene.

All of the injured are being treated or operated on in hospital, police said, adding that they are now out of life-threatening danger.

Police have been on high alert in Germany since a spate of attacks on civilians previous year including a December attack on a Berlin Christmas market, when a hijacked truck plowed into the crowds, killing 12 and injuring many more.

A gunman opened fire at a disco in southern Germany on Sunday, killing one and wounding four before being shot by police, officials said in a statement. Grote was unsure of the motives for the attack, saying, "It remains unclear which was the overriding element".

Amateur video footage showed them circling him in the middle of a busy city street, hurling chairs to keep him at a distance as he brandishes his knife and yells.

The attack is being investigated by local police.
