MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The incident occurred on Sunday near Reutlingen’s central bus terminal when a 21-year-old Syrian asylum seeker attacked a 42-year-old pregnant Pole with a machete. The attack left the woman dead and five more people injured. Police managed to detain the assailant, who had a previous criminal record.
"Unfortunately, our consular services received the sad news from the German police that the victim of the attack in Reutlingen was a citizen of Poland," Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman Rafal Sobczak said, as quoted by the Polish Television.
