No terrorist motive behind cathedral rampage: Berlin police

Berlin police said there was no sign that a "rampaging" man with a knife whom they shot and wounded Sunday at the city s main cathedral had had a "terrorist motive".

"Based on what we know so far, we have no information that the suspect in any way had a terrorist or Islamist motive," a police spokesman said.
 
The spokesman later added that the man, whose threatening behaviour led police to shoot him in the leg, was a 53-year-old Austrian who had been wielding a knife and was "verbally aggressive".
