Germany: Man pleads guilty to deadly Hamburg supermarket attack

A 26-year-old Palestinian man, Ahmad Alhaw, accused of carrying out a deadly knife attack in an Edeka supermarket, pleaded guilty at a court hearing in Hamburg on Friday. The defendant was charged with murder and six counts of attempted murder as well as grievous bodily harm. Alhaw motives are not yet clear to the investigators. According to Hamburg's Interior Senator Andy Grote, Islamist... Еще motives and 'mental lability' might have been at play. During the investigation, no evidence of accomplices or association with the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) was found. According to local media, the suspect was to have been deported after his asylum application was rejected in 2016; however, the process was suspended due to a lack of identity documents. The trial is expected to last until March 2. Last July, the suspect took a 20-centimetre (eight-inch) knife from the supermarket's shelves before carrying out the attack. The stab wounds left 50-year-old German man dead and five others injured.
