In a knife attack on a bus in northern Germany, nine people injured, the motive of the attack is still not clear. When a packed bus was moving in towards Travemuende, one of the popular beach destination, a man took out a weapon on passengers, said chief prosecutor Ulla Hingst said.

The Regional interior minister for Schleswig-Holstein state, Hans-Joachim Grote, told six people were wounded with a knife and three others injured. The attacker also punched the bus driver.

The motive of the attack is still not clear and the investigation is being done. Seeing the attack happening, bus driver quickly halted the bus and let the passengers escape.

"The passengers jumped out of the bus and were screaming. It was terrible. Then the injured were brought out. The perpetrator had a kitchen knife."

An unnamed female passenger told that she has given her seat to an elderly woman when the attacker stabbed her.
A police car which happened to be close by arrived at the scene quickly, allowing officers to detain the assailant, the newspaper reported.
