An axe-man who stormed a passenger train and hacked at terrified passengers while shouting "Allahu Akbar" has been identified as a 17-year-old Afghan who entered Germany as a lone refugee.
Bavarian Interior Ministry Joachim Hermann confirmed in a televised interview that the suspect was a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who arrived in Germany without his parents. He boarded the train in Ochsenfurt, where he had been staying with a foster family.
The teenager reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar" before launching the attack using a knife and axe. He was shot dead by police in Heidingsfeld as he attempted to flee the scene. His motive was not immediately clear.

He's shouting "Allahu Akbar" and police can't determine a motive?
He got lost while looking for firewood perhaps?
Good lord! The denial of the tenets of Islam run deep in Europe, don't they?
