Dusseldorf police: Several people injured in ax attack at train station

Police and emergency workers stand outside the main railway station following what police described as an axe attack on March 9 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Earlier, Bruno Macedo tweeted from a train stuck outside the station: "Man with axe chased by police in Dusseldorf".

Around five people have been injured but police were not able to say how seriously.

A federal police spokesman told the AFP news agency that other suspects may be at large, but it was not clear how many people were being sought.

He killed 12 people, including the lorry's registered Polish driver, and was shot dead four days later in Italy after firing first at police there.
