Asylum seeker ‘who slashed his two-year-old daughter’s throat in Germany may be heading to the UK

Sohail A – Once in Britain they’ll never be able to kick him out.

A rejected Pakistani asylum seeker in Germany is feared to have fled to the UK after slashing the throat of his two-year-old daughter, police say.

Interpol is involved in the hunt for a 33-year-old man identified as Sohail A, who police say murdered his child following a violent row with his wife at their home on the north German city of Hamburg on Monday.

UK police have been notified as a matter of urgency as Hamburg detectives believe he may have relatives in the country.
