At least two people have been killed and five more injured in a stabbing rampage on a regional train in Germany today. 

A man, who is said to be Syrian, attacked the passengers with a knife shortly before the regional train travelling from Kiel to Hamburg arrived at Brokstedt station at around 3pm today before he was arrested.

The suspect, who has not been named by police, launched the knife rampage just before the train arrived at Brokstedt station near Neumunster, a town in northern Germany. 

Two people were killed and five were wounded in the attack, including one person who is in critical condition, Sabine Suetterlin-Waack, the interior minister of Schleswig-Holstein state told DPA news agency.

An initial investigation indicated seven people were wounded, the police agency said. 

The attacker was tackled by police officers at the train station and arrested, reports Spiegel.   

An eyewitness told KN-online that people in his train carriage panicked when three girls ran in and told them a man with a knife was on the train. 

Several ambulances are now at the scene to treat the injured passengers and the police have closed the station. 

Police did not give out any information on the suspect’s identity and said his possible motives were under investigation.
