1 person dead after German train stabbing
BERLIN (AP) — Police say there's no evidence that a man suspected of stabbing four people at a station outside Munich had any accomplices or was part of an Islamic extremist network.

Senior police official Guenther Gietl said a woman reported hearing the words "infidel, you must die" at the time of the stabbing early Tuesday.

However, police said there's no sign that he had any contact with Islamic extremist groups or any evidence of radicalization. And another senior police official, Lothar Koehler, said the suspect made a "rather confused impression" during questioning
