Apartment searched after attack on police officer in Germany

An apartment has been searched in the German state of Hesse following a knife attack at an event in the city of Mannheim that left a police officer critically injured, according to the state criminal police office (LKA), reported dpa.

The search on Friday evening was linked to investigations related to Mannheim, an LKA spokesman said on Saturday. Media reports suggesting it was the apartment of the suspected perpetrator were not initially confirmed.

The attack occurred on Friday morning during an event hosted by the anti-Islam Pax Europa movement. Several people were injured, including the policeman.

The perpetrator also reportedly underwent surgery after sustaining gunshot wounds during his apprehension and is currently not fit for questioning.

The motive for the attack remains unclear. Several media reports said the suspect is a 25-year-old from Herat, Afghanistan, who lives in southern Hesse.
