A Syrian man killed a woman with a machete and wounded two others outside a bus station in the southwestern German city of Reutlingen before being arrested
The woman who was killed in the attack was pregnant. Police spokesman Bjoern Reusch said that witnesses say the 21-year-old asylum-seeker was having an argument with the woman before attacking her. The suspect wounded another woman and a man as he fled. The woman worked at the kebab stand near where confrontation took place. The attack comes as Germany is on edge following a rampage at a Munich mall recently by an 18-year-old in which nine people were killed, and an ax attack on a train that left five wounded in southern Germany, for which the Islamic State has claimed responsibility. Some Germans are also fearful of any signs of a rise in crime or lawlessness after the country registered some 1 million asylum-seekers in 2015.
