Afghan Train Attacker in Germany Had Adopted Radical Islamist Ideology – Wall Street Journal

The Afghan teenager who attacked passengers on a German train Monday evening appeared to have adopted a radical Islamist ideology without being part of a terrorist network, a senior state official said Tuesday.

The 17-year-old Afghan man had a hand-drawn Islamic State flag in his room and a text indicating “he had recently radicalized himself,” Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said in a news conference on Tuesday.
