Afghan Migrant Shot Dead After Going on Stabbing Rampage in Germany

BERLIN (AP) — German police said Saturday that a German fighter attacked an Afghan man while he was watching the opening match of the Euro 2024 soccer tournament on television in east Germany, wounding three people and then shooting and killing him.

Police said the 27-year-old Afghan first attacked his 23-year-old compatriot with a “knife-like object” on Friday evening in Wormirstedt, a small town about 80 miles (130 kilometers) west of Berlin. The victim later died from his wounds.

Police said the man then attacked a group of people watching a Germany vs Scotland football match in a private garden, injuring three German men, two of them seriously.

Police said the gunman had the same weapon and attacked officers who were called to the scene, after two officers shot and wounded the man, who died a short time later in hospital.

Police said the motive for the attack was unclear. The interior ministry of the state of Saxony-Anhalt, which includes Wormirstedt, said it had stepped up police presence across the state. The soccer tournament is being held in cities across Germany and runs until July 14.
