Hamburg, Germany Attack: One Dead, Four Wounded

There was no immediate word on his possible motive and police said that they are "still investigating in every direction".

Germany has been on high alert about the threat of a jihadist attack since Amri's rampage in Berlin, for which the Islamic State group claimed responsibility.

Barmbek is in northeastern Hamburg, away from the downtown district.

There are reports that he is known Islamist and shouted "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest" in Arabic) as he fled.

He said the unnamed attacker was known to have been radicalised but had not been considered risky and his motive remained unclear.

"These criminals want to poison our free society with fear, but they will not succeed", mayor Scholz said. Police said, the suspect, born in the United Arab Emirates, acted alone and was, later, overpowered by passersby.

The police have not yet declared whether they believe the incident was terror-related.

U.S. hits Venezuela with more sanctions ahead of vote
The U.S. says those sanctions are placed to pressure President Maduro to halt efforts to rewrite the country's constitution. But Maduro has pushed on, accusing Washington of fomenting unrest against him, aided by the conservative opposition.

Police said the man was 26 years old but did not confirm his name or his nationality.

Earlier on May 21, at least 6 people were injured after a man attacked people with a knife and a bat at a park in Japan's Chiba prefecture, the police said. Der Tagesspiegel, a daily based in Berlin, said the suspect was of Palestinian ethnicity and had come to Germany seeking asylum.

The 16-year-old boy was fatally wounded in the knife assault on the banks of the Alster river but a 15-year-old girl who was with him escaped unharmed after the attacker shoved her into the water. While on the run, the suspect stabbed and injured four other people.

Grote added that the man had not been deported - even though his asylum application had been rejected - because he lacked the necessary identification papers.

On July 24, 2016, a 27-year-old failed Syrian asylum seeker blows himself up near an open-air music festival in the southern city of Ansbach, wounding 15 others. Officers then arrested the man.

German women in Cologne and Hamburg were also the targets of mass rapes, groping and molestations on New Year's Eve 2015, when more than 1,000 reports of such attacks were made in which more than 90 percent of the suspects were migrants.
