BERLIN (Sputnik) – Germany has not experienced acts of terrorism prior to the axe attack by an Afghan refugee in the state of Bavaria, German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said Tuesday, urging an investigation into the motives of the crime.
"The motives of the crime should be fully investigated. It is difficult to keep a loner, who has not colluded with third parties, from committing the crime in a timely matter. We have been able to do it until now. There were no terrorist attacks in Germany until now," Maas said in a short statement televised by the N24 broadcaster.
The Daesh is outlawed in the Russia and numerous other nations.
