But Islamist background? Federal prosecutor confirms investigation into ICE knife attacker

In November, a Syrian attacked travelers on an ICE train between Regensburg and Nuremberg. An expert initially suspected that the suspect could be mentally ill.

Munich – More than four months ago there was a knife attack by a Syrian on travelers in an ICE in Bavaria.* Now the federal prosecutor’s office has “serious indications of an Islamist background” indeed. Because of the special importance of the case, the Attorney General took over the investigation. A spokesman for the Karlsruhe authority said on Monday at the request of the German Press Agency .

Knife attack in the ICE train between Regensburg and Munich – Islamist background?

According to information from the dpa , the investigators are now assuming that the 27-year-old rejects the western, free-democratic state and social system of the Federal Republic. He disregards all Germans and only wants to live with other “orthodox” Muslims in a state based on Sharia law.

This resulted, among other things, from the statements of witnesses who were acquainted with the suspect. It was also said that propaganda material from the terrorist organization Islamic State (IS) was found on him, which also called for attacks. The suspect himself appeared on social media.
