Associated Press

BERLIN (AP) — Investigating officials say a 33-year-old man arrested on suspicion of fatally stabbing two teenagers and injuring five other passengers on a train in Germany had been released from pretrial detention a week ago and had previous criminal convictions — including for a stabbing. The man, who was identified as Ibrahim A., a stateless Palestinian who came to Germany in 2014, allegedly stabbed multiple people Wednesday afternoon on a regional train traveling from Kiel to Hamburg. A 17-year-old girl and a 19-year-old man died of their wounds, authorities said. Two victims were still in life-threatening condition and two others were severely injured. One person was slightly injured, police said Thursday.
