A 15-year-old Afghan boy was arrested yesterday, for fatally stabbing a German girl of the same age.
German media say, an argument between the two broke out in a grocery store in the town of Kandel in southwest Germany. The girl was stabbed during the confrontation and died of her injuries in a local hospital later that day.
The Afghan teen was arrested after eyewitnesses gave descriptions of him to the police. The regional prosecutor in Landau has ruled out a terrorist motive.
Last year another German teenager was murdered by an Afghan migrant. The 19-year-old medical student Maria Ladenburger, was brutally raped and murdered in Freiburg im Breisgau by Hussein Khavari. In June this year, a psychologist was stabbed to death by a Syrian refugee in Saarbrücken.
