In a new development to the barbaric German train attack, that attacker had hand painted flag of so called Islamic State in his room.

The Afghan refugee has been accused of carrying out knife and axe attack on a southern German train. The incident injured 4 people from Hong Kong.

The 17-year-old man was shot dead by cops as he tried to escape from the incident site. He was apparently shouting Allahu Akbar (God is great) while trying to kill the people.

This attack comes days after Islamic State claimed deadly Nice attack that killed 83 people and injured over 200.

Joachim Herrmann, the interior minister of the state of Bavaria, told German TV the flag had been found among the teenager's belongings in his room in the nearby town of Ochsenfurt.

Mr Herrmann said it was too early to say whether the teenager was a member of an Islamist group or had become self-radicalised in recent times.
