    Police uncovered further evidence suggesting Daesh links of an Afghan refugee who attacked passengers on a train in Germany, German television reported Tuesday.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) – Police uncovered further evidence suggesting an Afghan refugee who attacked passengers on a train in Germany had been linked to Daesh, German television reported Tuesday.

    Searches uncovered a hand-drawn Daesh flag in the 17-year-old refugee’s room, Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said earlier in the day. The teen was shot dead by police after injuring three train passengers in an axe attack early Tuesday.

    "It is now known that not only a hand-drawn flag of the Islamic State group was found in the suspect’s room, but also documents indicating links to Daesh," an N24 broadcaster’s correspondent reported live on air, adding that authorities seized the documents for inspection and analysis.
