Germany remains on high alert following several jihadist attacks there and in other European countries.

A 35-year-old man was hurt while overpowering the attacker in the street alongside other passers-by shortly after the killing.

In a press statement, police said that the suspect entered the supermarket, and suddenly began stabbing customers before running off.
