Hong Kong family hurt in German knife attack on train


HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong officials say four members of a family from the semiautonomous southern Chinese city were hurt in an ax and knife attack on a German train.

The city’s immigration department said Tuesday that it’s providing assistance to the family following the attack in the southern city of Wuerzburg.

Wuerzburg police shot and killed the teenage Afghan migrant who carried out the attack. The force said on its Facebook page that three victims suffered serious injuries, a fourth was slightly injured and 14 more were being treated for shock.

The South China Morning Post newspaper reported that the family members hurt included the 62-year-old father, 58-year-old mother, 27-year-old daughter and her 31-year-old boyfriend.

A fifth family member, a 17-year-old son, was not hurt. The paper didn’t cite its source.
