Breaking: Earlier morning a man attacked with a knife several people at the train station Grafing near Munich.

At around 5am Tuesday morning a man has attacked people at the commuter train station Grafing near Munich, Germany. One man died in the hospital from the knife wounds and three other men have been injured.

The attacker is in police custody and is supposed a young German. According to witnesses he screamed "Allahu Akbar" during the attack. This would point towards an islamist background. The officials have ordered a news blackout. This is likely in response to the witness reports. The police needs to be careful in investigating the incident in order to classify the attack.

A spokesperson of the investigating prosecutors said that the attacker is 27 years old and not from the area. He has not been conspicuous prior to the attack. Experts say that it is too early to classify this incident as a terror attack.


German Interior minister Herrmann said that the attack has no islamist or other terrorist background. The attacker has psychological and drug related problems.

There will be a press conference at 3pm CET where police will announce the results of the investigation.

If it is an terror attack with islamist background, it would fall in series with attacks incidents in France and Belgium. The train station has been shut off by police and commuters face long delays getting to work today. Grafing is about 30 kilometers outside of Munich's center.

It is a weird place and a weird time for an attack. 

The official Bavarian broadcaster has the latest updates. German TV network NTV has live video from the scene in Grafing.
