HAMBURG: A man from Niger stabbed to death his German ex-wife and their 1-year-old daughter in a brutal attack in a busy train station in central Hamburg Thursday, police said.
The bloody knife killings took place mid-morning in the busiest subway station of Hamburg, Germany’s second-biggest city.
“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.
