ERLIN (AP) — Police in Switzerland say a Swiss man set a fire and stabbed people on a train in the country’s northeast, wounding six people as well as himself.
Police in St. Gallen canton (state) say the incident happened at 2:20 local time (1220 GMT) Saturday afternoon as the train neared the station in Salez, near the border with Liechtenstein.
They say the 27-year-old suspect had at least one knife and poured out a flammable liquid, which caught fire.
Police say the wounded included a 6-year-old child, three women aged 17, 34 and 43, and two men aged 17 and 50. Some of the injuries were said to be serious but there were no further details immediately on the seriousness of their injuries.
