Dusseldorf train station axe attack injures at least five, man arrested

Regional police said on Twitter that Dusseldorf's station is now closed due to a "comprehensive" police response there.

A federal police spokesman said two suspects had been arrested in connection with the attack.

There were reports of a "crazed man" at the scene and two people were arrested.

Police spokesman Rainer Kerstiens said more suspected attackers are believed to be on the run. "I have experienced a lot, but I have never experienced it", the witness said.




"Man with axe chased by police in Dusseldorf".

Photos and videos have emerged showing what appears to be an injured person lying on the train station floor. "Station closed. I am in the train things look bad #police #terror".

Hundreds of passengers were evacuated from the station during the large scale police operation.

The station has since been evacuated with a heavy police presence now on scene.
