#1 "From the former Yugoslavia" - perhaps Bosnian Muslim? (one group of Muslims that has legitimate grievances, though with the UN, not Germany.)

#3 Update from the Daily Mail article linked above:

The suspected culprit, identified as Fatmir H, 36, from Kosovo, has been arrested and German anti-terror police confirmed they are not hunting anyone else.

He was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic with a history of high anxiety and self-harm, police said, ruling out a terrorist motive.

They said he was in an 'exceptional mental state' at the time.


Incidentally, a second Daily Mail article this morning reported a second attack in Dusseldorf: this time with a machete on an elderly man in a parking lot. That attacker is still being hunted. Nothing in the article suggests the identity or motivation of the new attacker.

Deutsche Welle has a new article on the subject, which adds the following updates:

The suspect, a 36-year-old man from Kosovo, was detained in Düsseldorf following a brief manhunt, senior police official Dietmar Kniep said at a press conference on Friday.
Nine people were wounded when the man allegedly began lashing out at train passengers with an ax on Thursday night.

Kniep said police had ruled out terrorism, and that the alleged attacker appeared to be suffering from mental illness.

"He said in a first interview that he was trying to get police to shoot him," Kneip said. "We call it 'suicide by cop'."

"There is no evidence at all of any religious or political motive at all," he added.

Medical documents found at the suspect’s home in the nearby city of Wuppertal indicated that he had been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, police said. The man's brother said he had purchased an ax last week because he thought he was being followed.

The suspect reportedly first attacked several people on a local train as it arrived at Düsseldorf’s central station, then continued his rampage on several platforms and in the main hall of the building.

According to Düsseldorf police, four female passengers, including two Italian tourists and a 13-year-old girl, as well as five men, were injured. Four of the nine victims were seriously wounded but none were in a life threatening condition.

Prosecutors said the alleged attacker, who came to Germany in 2009, would be charged with nine counts of attempted manslaughter.

#4 An axe? That is so Nordic and un-Islamic. Apostate!

...or do we accuse him of 'cultural appropriation' instead?

#5 Crazy "German" took an axe,
Gave some kafirs forty whacks.
Wahnsinn only, nicht Koran,
On the Deutsche Bundesbahn!
