Police confirmed that a knife attack on a high-speed train in Germany injured several people.

Local police told The Associated Press news agency that they received a call about the attack at around 9:00 local time (08:00 GMT) on Saturday morning.

The train in question, one of Germany’s high-speed ICE trains, was traveling between the Bavarian cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg at the time of the attack.

A man was arrested in connection with the attack on the Seubersdorf train station, where the train is currently stopped, police said. Police said more people were injured but were unable to provide a specific number.

“According to preliminary information, several people were injured”, the police of Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz said in a statement, assuring that “now there is no more danger”.

The Bild newspaper said at least three people were injured, two of them seriously.

A police spokesperson said none of their lives were in danger.

So far, there is no information available about the attacker or his possible motives.

Bavarian state police are on site in Seubersdorf, local police confirmed.

A spokesman for the German railway network confirmed that Seubersdorf station has been closed since around 9 and that train journeys between Regensburg and Nuremberg have been suspended.

Germany has had episodes of violence from armed groups and the far right in recent years.

Several attacks have been committed since 2015.

On June 25, three people were killed and another five injured in one knife attack in Wuerzburg, Southern Germany.
