The suspected knife attacker who stabbed several people in the German city of Hamburg on Friday was identified as a 26-year-old man born in the United Arab Emirates, local police said.

His nationality is still being clarified, police said in a statement. A 50-year-old German was killed and six others were injured in the knife attack in a Hamburg supermarket.

The police tweeted that they believe the attacker was acting alone.
