In yet another terror attack in Europe, an ax-wielding Afghan terrorist targeted a family aboard a train in Germany. Yediot Achronot reports that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack:
ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack on a train in Germany that injured at least five people.
The claim was posted on the group's Aamaq news agency on Tuesday.
It came hours after a 17-year-old Afghan asylum seeker attacked passengers with an ax and knife on a train near Wuerzburg-Heidingsfeld on Monday night, before he was shot and killed by a special police unit which happened to be nearby.
The statement says the attacker was "a member of the Islamic State" and carried out the attack in response to the militant group's calls to attack countries that are members of the anti-ISIS coalition.
"Even during the first emergency call, a witness said that the attacker was shouting 'Allahu akbar' on the train," Joachim Herrmann, Bavaria's interior minister, told ZDF Television. "Also, during the search of his room, a hand-painted ISIS flag was found."
