by BBC  |  published on July 19, 2016

A hand-painted flag of so-called Islamic State has been found in the room of an Afghan refugee accused of carrying out an axe and knife attack on a southern German train, officials say.

The 17-year-old injured four people from Hong Kong, two critically, in the attack in Wuerzburg on Monday evening. He was shot dead by police as he fled.

He had shouted Allahu akbar” (“God is great”), a witness said.

The IS-linked Amaq news agency said the teenager was an IS “fighter”.

It said he had “carried out the operation in answer to the calls to target the countries of the coalition fighting the Islamic State”.

    At least this terrorist will no longer threaten civilized people. The Islamic State and its supporters basically seek to destroy civilization. Their idea of utopia is a world filled with violence, misery, oppression, poverty and ignorance. When these murderers reach the afterlife they are going to realize there aren’t 72 whores waiting for them.

    Merkel needs to stop taking money from these muslim groups and start thinking about her country! Her country hates her now, and she’s already had to double her own security! Give your people their guns back before all of Europe is gone, and it won’t be much longer!

    REFUGEE!. What is Germany thinking? Another prime example of how this country is in desperate need of a president that is dedicated to the American people and not to the terrorists that think they can come here and kill our citizens. Oblahama is running out out of excuses to blame this on gun control.
