Solution for knife attacks in Germany: Politicians call for a ban on knives and weapons on all trains

The Union parliamentary group calls for a general ban on weapons in German trains.

Berlin (German news agency) - Alexander Throm (CDU), domestic spokesman for the Union faction, said to Bild am Sonntag: "In trains, a ban on weapons must apply as soon as possible." The railways could easily impose this within the framework of their domiciliary rights. "That would be a first step towards more security. Weapons and dangerous knives have no place in trains." The topic has been back on the political agenda since January 25: On that day, a Palestinian refugee killed two young people on a regional train in Schleswig-Holstein. The 33-year-old killer had been released from custody days earlier for another stabbing attack.
