Report: Man kills woman with machete in Germany, is arrested


BERLIN (AP) — German media are reporting that a man with a machete killed a woman and injured two others in the southwestern city of Reutlingen before being arrested by police.

Bild and the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspapers both reported Sunday that the reason for the attack in the city south of Stuttgart was unclear.

Reutlingen police could not immediately be reached to provide further details.

The attacks comes as Germany is on edge, following a rampage at a Munich mall on Friday night in which nine people were killed, and an ax attack on a train a week ago that left five wounded.
