In a knife attack against passengers at a train station, a man has been killed and three others injured in southern Germany.

The man, apparently a Takfiri supporter, stabbed indiscriminately with a knife in the town of Grafing east of Munich around 0300 GMT on Tuesday.

German media said police have arrested the assailant, described as a 27-year-old man, who was taken away for interrogation.

Prosecutors said the suspect apparently had "a political motivation." He was not known to the police who are now working to identify him.

"The assailant made remarks at the scene of the crime that indicate a political motivation," apparently a Takfiri motive, said a prosecutor's spokesman. "We are still determining what the exact remarks were."

He added that one man has died of the wounds sustained in the attack.

Eyewitnesses said the man stabbed indiscriminately and also attacked a newspaper delivery stand.

Rescue helicopters and ambulances rushed to the scene and passengers were forced to enter through a side entrance.

The incident comes after horrific terror attacks in Brussels left 35 people dead in March, Press TV reported.
