German prosecutors: Palestinian stabber at Hamburg supermarket wanted to kill Christians as part of Jihad

German prosecutors said Friday they have indicted on murder charges a Palestinian man who fatally stabbed one person and wounded 6 others at a Hamburg supermarket in July. The suspect wanted to kill as many Germans of Christian faith as possible to avenge what he considered to be injustices against Muslims worldwide, federal prosecutors said in a statement. He considered his actions a contribution to a worldwide jihad, they added. The suspect, a rejected asylum seeker identified only as Ahmad A. due to German privacy rules, was charged with one count of murder, six counts of attempted murder and six counts of serious bodily harm. Prosecutors said investigators had found no credible evidence that A., who was born in the UAE and arrived in Germany in 2015, was involved with any extremist group, They also found no evidence that anyone else was involved in the attack.
