A man on Monday took a woman hostage at a pharmacy in Cologne's central railway station.

"Eye-witnesses reported hearing shots, others spoke of smoke bombs, but we cannot confirm any of that so far," a police spokesman told Cologne-based broadcaster NTV.

Authorities ordered an evacuation of the station, which is a main hub for rail traffic across Germany and western Europe. They also appealed to locals to avoid the area and warned of likely disruptions to train services.

Police called on the public to not publish or share images or video of their positions.

Germany: 'Hostage situation' at Cologne train station




Your opinion on the news article:


Not much data to speculate on. Reportedly single person and not terrorism related. I predict the media will use the phrase "mentally disturbed individual".

Send in the sniper team, negotiate a clean shot with him.

The police say the offender was severely injured when they stormed the train station.


While the incident is under control, "operational measures" still continue according to the police. That means the area – including the train station – is still in shut down.

Earlier news station n-tv had claimed the offender had poured inflammable liquid over a 14 year old girl and set her on fire.

But just minor injuries they said on Welt. Who knows maybe there's still more information to come.

Most likely the same thing except the hostage taker would be wasted, saving thousands in court fees and jail costs

You live in France, you'll do as they say regardless of which one of those humorless politicians takes charge.
