10 injured in knife attack by passenger on crowded bus in Germany

She said the identity of the suspect, who was being questioned by police, has yet to be confirmed.

At least 10 people were injured, including three seriously, in a knife attack on a bus in Germany.

He said authorities were still trying to determine the circumstances of the attack.

"There is now a major police deployment in Luebeck", the force wrote on Twitter. The attack took place at 1.47 p.m. local time (1147 GMT).

A spokeswoman for prosecutors, Ulla Hingst, told n-tv television that the bus driver stopped the vehicle and let the passengers out after the attack.

Meanwhile, the scene around the bus stop has been cordoned off, with the police operation being underway.

"We are examining the situation and will give more information later", the tweet said.

The suspect "was overpowered" and taken into custody, police in Germany's Schleswig-Holstein state said in a statement.

No further details were immediately available. Twelve people, including the man driving the truck when it was hijacked, were killed.

In Berlin in December 2016, a Tunisian whose request for asylum was turned down and who had links to Islamist militants hijacked a truck and ploughed into a crowded marketplace.
