“It is still difficult for me to classify things,’’ said the Mayor of Limburg, Marius Hahn.

The prosecutor general’s office in Frankfurt told dpa that the background of the incident was still unclear and the investigation continued in all directions.

The magazine Spiegel reported that the arrested 32-year-old man was known to German police because of bodily injury, possession of drugs and shoplifting, but not as an extremist.

Following the incident on Monday evening, one injured person was treated at the scene while seven others were taken to hospitals.

They were discharged during the night, the Police said on Twitter. (NAN)
