At least seven people have been injured in an axe attack at Dusseldorf train station.

Three people were severely injured, while four suffered light injuries, the “local police in Germany confirmed“http://www.presseportal.de/blaulicht/pm/13248/3581306 .

One man has been arrested, local police confirmed, correcting earlier reports of multiple arrests. He has been identified as a 36-year-old man from the Former Yugoslavia who lives in Wuppertal. They described the suspect as having ‘mental health problems’.

His motive remains unclear, but police are not describing it as a ‘terror’ attack.

Searches are ongoing in the station and the surrounding area, although as yet there is no information about further attackers.

The country is on high alert after a string of terror attacks. The latest, less than three months ago, a man drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing twelve people.
