Woman dies in machete attack in Germany


A Syrian asylum seeker has killed a woman with a machete and wounded two others outside a bus station in the south-western German city of Reutlingen before being arrested.

Witnesses said the 21-year-old man, who was known to police, was having an argument with the woman before attacking her. Police said the motive behind the attack is still not clear.

The attack comes as Germany is on edge following a shooting rampage at a Munich mall on Friday night in which nine people were killed, and an axe attack on a train a week ago that left five wounded in southern Germany.
