At least three people have been injured and one has been arrested this Saturday after a knife attack on a train that was traveling between the German cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg, in the south of the country, as reported by the Police.

Sources from the newspaper ‘Bild’ specify that there are three injured, two in serious condition, although their lives are not in danger, and that the detainee is a 27-year-old man of Arab origin.

The train is currently stopped in the city of Seubersdorf, in the state of Bavaria, waiting for the situation to be clarified.

«There are wounded. It is not yet known how many there are ”, a spokesman for the police headquarters said to Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR24). The authorities avoid, for now, talking about a terrorist attack.

However, the security forces consider the situation to be controlled while the German railway operator, Deutsche Bahn, has begun to divert the trains that traveled this route, bound for “a more appropriate place”, reports DPA.
