17 year old Afghan teen attacks and injures 22 people with an axe aboard a train in German

A 17 year old Afghan teenage refugee attacked passengers on a train in Germany on Monday night with an axe, leaving three people in critical condition and 19 others with minor injuries, in what was described by officials as a "probable" Islamist attack. The assailant, armed with a knife and an ax, was identified as a 17-year-old Afghan man living in Ochsenfurt, Bavaria, Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said.
The attack took place as the train was traveling between stations.
The train made an emergency stop short of the station at Wurzburg-Heidingsfeld and the assailant jumped out of the train, Hench said. Police shot dead the suspect, a 17-year-old as he attempted to flee the scene.

 "It is quite probable that this was an Islamist attack," said a ministry spokesman, adding that the attacker had apparently shouted "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest) as he stabbed people.

The attacker was said to have been carrying "weapons for slashing and cutting”, according to German media reports, including an axe.
 "The perpetrator was able to leave the train, police left in pursuit and as part of this pursuit, they shot the attacker and killed him," said a spokesman for the Wurzburg police.
