German police say machete attack could be ‘crime of passion’

Berlin, Germany | AFP |

German police are working on the assumption that Sunday’s machete attack by a Syrian asylum-seeker that left one woman dead and two people injured in the city of Reutlingen was a “crime of passion”, DPA news agency reported.

“When a man and woman have an argument, we assume that we are dealing with a crime of passion,” a local police spokesman told DPA, after media reported that the attacker and the murdered woman were close and worked in the same snack bar.
