Driver Runs Down Three People In Germany

One man was killed, and two people were injured when a driver armed with a knife ran down three people in a pedestrian area of the German city of Heidelberg.

Those injured were standing in front a bakery when they were run over.

The man fled the scene carrying a knife, and was then shot by police. The attacker is now in hospital in serious condition.

Twitter users in Germany have been sharing details throughout the day:

This was the car used by the attacker

Police say the motive for the attack is not yet known, though it does have some similarity to the German Christmas Market attack, where 12 people were killed when a driver plowed into a crowd.

ISIS has called for those kind of attacks around the world, and a growing number of nations have seen terror attacks carried out by lone assailants.
