Muslim refugee hoped to kill as many Christians as possible in a German supermarket

The German immigrant who fatally stabbed one shopper and injured six more in July wanted to kill as many Christians as possible as part of “a worldwide jihad,” prosecutors said Friday.

The 26-year-old Palestinian man, who has been identified only as “Ahmad A.” due to German privacy rules, was arrested after the attack in Hamburg and charged with murder and attempted murder. Prosecutors gave chilling new details about the crime.

The suspect wanted to avenge injustices against Muslims around the world and so, according to federal prosecutors, decided to kill as many Christians as possible.
