At least nine people were injured today--three of them seriously--as a man started stabbing people on a bus in Lubeck, Germany.

The perp is described as a 30-year old Iranian man. They are not calling it terrorism yet.

And that's about all the details they are releasing for now. Stand by for updates.

Senseless and tragic.

Too bad someone didn’t have a gun.

If i were on that bus i'd imagine some passengers feeling terror.....

After the terror, i'd feel terrorised.

Terribly.

Some accounts say the man was carrying a "smoldering" backpack.

That's always a bad sign.

I can only legally carry my 3 inch folding blade in the UK but if I was on that bus I'd do my best to plunge it into his neck if I could.
I stabbed a burglar years ago when I was 17 or 18, I know I'm capable of it, and in my case, my stabbing was deemed to be reasonable force.
We must be able to defend ourselves from nutters, and I will every time, I'd prefer jail alive than stabbed dead on a bus.
Thoughts to the victims.

Local news outlets describe him as a male of Iranian origin and in his 30s. ...
The suspect, 34, is a German citizen and was born in Germany, the prosecutor, Ulla Hingst, told LN...


I don't get this guy's motives. If he doesn't like Germany or Germans, why not go back to his homeland Iran? No matter how much these guys hate the West, that's one thing they never even consider.

Maybe he is just mentally ill but odds are there is some extremist in him going by past cases.
Radical Islam, whether it is Shia or Sunni, will be a looked back on historically as some of Islams darkest days.

Germany is just about Iran's best friend in the G7. Must be a nutter

Why do we never hear of people randomly going on knife rampages in Middle Eastern countries? Bring them to the West and suddenly they become Mr Stabby. Either they hate Westerners or are being encouraged to go on attacks by someone.

They use bombs and suicide attacks there. Don't pretend you did never hear about that before.

Sure, to shoot around in a full bus.

There was no gun needed, the passengers disarmed and arrested that a-hole. Without shooting and injuring or killing anybody else.

Whoooosh. That's the sound of the post going right over your head. Point is, if the citizens were armed, this attack wouldn't have happened in the first place.

Because that's normal behavior over there.
