The spokesman said the attack happened on a local train near the city of Wuerzburg. He could not confirm media reports that the attacker had been shot dead and said the police operation was still ongoing.

The rail line between Würzburg-Heidingsfeld and Ochsenfurt has been closed, the police spokesman said.

There was no indication of the motive for the attack.
