Wolfsburg: Trial begins after attempted murder

The trial against an 18-year-old has started in Wolfsburg, Germany. The prosecutor accuses him of attempting to murder a bouncer. The bouncer had denied the accused access to the club, whereupon the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the upper body and back of the bouncer several times. Thanks to his protective vest, the security guard remained unharmed.

Maurice P., who steered his vehicle into a Rose Monday procession and wounded 154 people on February 24th, 2020 in Volkmarsen (Germany), remains silent about his motive. His lawyer also announced that his client was unlikely to comment on this in court proceedings.
