A man from Niger stabbed to death his German ex-wife and decapitated their one-year-old daughter in a brutal attack in a busy train station in central Hamburg. The bloody knife killings took place mid-morning in the busiest subway station of Hamburg, Germany’s second-biggest city.
Daily Star “The crime was very, very terrible in its execution, very targeted and very, very extreme,” said police spokesman Timo Zill. “We currently assume it was a crime of passion.” The 33-year-old suspect initially ran off but then phoned police, who arrested him inside the Jungfernstieg underground station.
Police said the child died immediately in the attack around 0850 GMT and the 34-year-old woman succumbed to her injuries later while in hospital.
