Man arrested after stabbing two train passengers near Swiss border

A 60-year-old German man has been arrested after two passengers were stabbed on a train near the Swiss border in Austria.

The attack happened at about 6.30am on Tuesday morning in Roethis, in Vorarlberg province.

According to reports, police said the man was mentally confused.

A 19-year-old man who suffered wounds to the stomach and a 17-year-old male with a throat injury were taken to hospital.

The attack comes after a 27-year-old Swiss national carried out a knife attack on a train near Salez station in Switzerland, killing one passenger and injuring five on Saturday.

Police have ruled out a possibility of a connection between the two, but its thought this latest attack could have been inspired by it.
