Three people seriously injured in a knife attack on a high-speed train in southern Germany–

Police arrested the alleged attacker, a 27-year-old Syrian man, shortly after the attack on a train travelling between the cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg in Bavaria.

The motive for the attack, at around 09:00 (08:00 GMT), remains unclear.

None of the injuries is thought to be life-threatening. Several hundred passengers were evacuated.

The train was halted at the station of Seubersdorf, roughly 70km (43m) south of Nuremberg, where the man was arrested.

Similar attacks in the past few years have exacerbated divisions in Germany as some of the perpetrators had arrived during the 2015 migrant crisis when Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country’s doors to some 900,000 asylum-seekers.
