The man who in the night from Monday to Tuesday in several places consciously been run into pedestrians in Germany, is put in suspicion because of various attempts to murder and remains in the cell. The judicial authorities have reported this. At the probable attack eight people were injured.

A fifty-year-old man deliberately drove over pedestrians in the German Ruhr area in at least four places during the night from Monday to Tuesday, presumably because of xenophobia. “There are clear indications that the man wanted to kill foreigners,” said Interior Minister Herbert Reul of North Rhine-Westphalia on Tuesday. A 46-year-old woman was seriously injured.

The wounded have, among other things, Syrian and Afghan origin. Police and prosecutors speak of a “deliberate attack”, but there are not (yet) indications that the man has links with right-wing radical groups.

It seems that “his hatred of foreigners is the result of personal dismay and resentment,” Reul said on Wednesday.

The first elements of the research show that the man may have mental problems.
