IS flag found in room of Germany train attacker 

Berlin, July 19 (IANS) A hand-painted flag of the Islamic State terror group was found in the room of a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who attacked passengers on a German train with a axe, injuring at least four people, officials said.

The teenager reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” before injuring four travellers from Hong Kong on Monday evening on a train that runs between Treuchlingen and Wuerzburg. He was shot dead by police as he fled.

An eye witness said the train carriage “looked like a slaughterhouse”.

Two of those injured are in critical condition, BBC reported.

The attack comes days after the IS claimed that the truck driver who ploughed through a Bastille Day crowd in Nice, France, killing 84 people and injuring over 200, was a “follower”.

Joachim Herrmann, the Interior Minister of the state of Bavaria, said the IS flag was found among the teenager’s belongings in his room in Ochsenfurt town.

Herrmann said it was too early to say whether the attacker was a member of the IS group or had become self radicalised.

The teenager, who claimed asylum after travelling to Germany as an unaccompanied minor, was living with the foster family since moving from a refugee centre.

Last year Germany registered more than one million migrants, including more than 150,000 Afghans, although the number has slowed dramatically this year since new EU measures were taken to stop the flow.

Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying condemned the attack and expressed his sympathy to the victims. Immigration officials from the city will accompany family members to Germany.


  1. A hand painted flag of the Islamic State terror group was found in the room of the 17-year-old Afghan refugee? Whaaat !!!! How could that be, I’m sure the Israeli/American intelligence had planted that flag there to give these people a bad name.

    But not to worry we have hope, all these West European countries should now give asylum to Zakir Naik an NRI (NOT REQUIRED INDIAN) so that he could give all of these guys regular booster dozes of peace, by his peace talks, and peace TV. These good, kind and loving peaceful people are only misunderstanding the peaceful teachings and resorting to violence ……… and then, we will all live happily every after.

  2. Why would someone carry a evidence to the crime scene? These champions of humanity from the western countries is afraid of sudden influx of refugees from the Islamic countries which they relentlessly bomb day and night.

    The new political parties which formed in EU are the new breed of hatred.Are these parties can challenge the government in power and question why they spending millions in bombing innocents which can secure jobs for their own people.
    They have already realised petrodollar is no more secured deposit.When war became business poor people will suffer. This are same asylum seekers of different race and religion looking for bread and secured shelter causing reverse tidal which the EU never expected.

    The Colonial England which once controlled 90% of the universe is found easy passage of exit through Brexit. This alone is going to cost nearly 140 Billion losses as estimated.

    As far as ISIS the ME is already termed them Daesh(Daesh is an acronym for the Arabic phrase al-Dawla al-Islamiya al-Iraq al-Sham (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). This unlaw group is fighting war in Islamic countries and never threat to the western world. The group leader is also found to be pictured with one of the prominent political leader of US.

    In principle they don’t follow any of Quranic teaching and Prophet Mohammed teaching(Peace and blessing upon him.

    One of the commenter in this forum seems to be very much impressed with Arnab Goswami of Times doctored video bringing irrelevant subject malign the image of scholar who teach comparative religion.

    Rumors are as dumb as the people who started them and as fake as the people who help spread them.

    “Without wood, a fire goes out. Without gossip, arguments stop. Charcoal keeps the coals glowing, wood keeps the fire burning, and troublemakers keep arguments alive”.-Proverbs 26:20-21

    I would request the brother implement the teaching of Bible himself before spreading falsehood.

    Jai Hind

  3. “17 years old Afghan refugee….” – report referring to a peaceful man who used an axe to attack innocent civilians while shouting ‘god is great’ in a foreign language.

    I’ve a feeling that he doesn’t belong to any religion as repeatedly pointed out by secular stenographers and Bollywood intellectuals. It explains why report doesn’t mention his religion. Let’s get back to old church attacks and RSS-bashing. After all, those VHP members organizing ‘saarvajanika ganeshostava’ are the biggest threat to India.
