Syrian Refugee Stabs Red Cross Psychologist to Death at Refugee Centre in Germany
A psychologist working for the German Red Cross has been stabbed to death by a Syrian man at a counseling centre for refugees in the western state of Saarland.
The charity said the attack took place on Wednesday in the state capital, Saarbruecken.
The 27-year-old Syrian attacked the Red Cross psychologist following an argument, German news agency dpa reported. The suspect, who wasn't identified, was arrested shortly after the attack.
The 30-year-old psychologist had been working for the Red Cross since 2014, helping people who had experienced trauma begin lives.
The shocking incident comes after an attack on Sunday that saw a five-year-old child stabbed to death by an Afghan national at a refugee shelter in southeastern Germany.
The 41-year-old assailant also injured the child's mother, a Russian national, and a six-year-old child at the scene was treated for shock and taken to hospital.
