The three people killed in a knife attack in the German city of Würzburg on Friday were all women, police say. The 24-year-old suspect, a Somali immigrant, grabbed a knife from the kitchen section of a department store, attacking several inside. He then lashed out at people outside. Five women and a child were also injured in the attack. Police say the suspect was possibly psychologically unstable and may have held extremist Islamist beliefs. On Saturday, he appeared in court, charged with three murders and six counts of attempted murder and causing grievous bodily harm. The man allegedly seized a knife and stabbed and killed a saleswoman and two more women in the store. He then injured five other women and a child on the street and in a bank.
