German media reported that a 22-year-old Afghan man attacked police with a knife on Wednesday evening on the island of Rügen in northeastern Germany.

The Bild newspaper wrote that the attacker was arrested and hospitalized, and the police were not injured in the attack.

Last week, another Afghan asylum seeker, Sulaiman Atayi, attacked an anti-Islam rally in the city of Mannheim. In this attack, one police officer was killed, and several others were injured.

Authorities in the German city of Stralsund said that on Wednesday evening, a bus driver reported to police that a young Afghan man had kicked the bus and cut election posters on the bus with a knife.

The police said that after arriving at the scene, the attacker initially complied with their request to put down the knife but then attacked them minutes later.

Last week’s attack by the Afghan assailant on the anti-Islam rally prompted widespread reactions from German officials.

Following the Mannheim attack, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz warned about the deportation of “serious criminals” from Afghanistan and Syria. Scholz said, “These kinds of criminals should be deported – even if they come from Syria and Afghanistan.”

This comes amid the dire situation of Afghan refugees in neighbouring countries such as Pakistan and Iran. Many Afghan refugees in these countries face harsh living conditions, limited access to basic services, and constant fear of forced deportation.
