Germany: Man arrested for stabbing five train passengers near Munich

Berlin: German police say several people were stabbed at a train station near Munich early Tuesday. Four or five people were wounded, one of them seriously.

The incident happened at the Grafing Bahnhof station, some 30 kilometers (nearly 20 miles) east of Munich and near the end of one of the city's commuter railway lines, shortly before 5 a.m. (0300 GMT). Police spokeswoman Michaela Grob said a man was arrested and authorities are working to identify him.

There was no immediate information on the assailant's motive.

At least one platform at the station was expected to remain closed through midday, and there were some delays, railway operator Deutsche Bahn said.
