The stabbing attack at the train station in Salez, Switzerland has now claimed a life. Police say a 34-year-old woman has died from her injuries while two girls remain fighting for their lives. St. Gallen Cantonal police spokesman Hanspeter Kruesi says train video shows a 27-year-old Swiss man walking onto the train on Saturday and pouring flammable liquid. (SOUNDBITE) (German) ST GALLEN CANTONAL POLICE SPOKESMAN, HANSPETER KRUESI, SAYING: "You also see that he had a knife in his hand and then suddenly you see a fireball, which severely injured these people." Two others were also stabbed or burned. Kruesi says they still don't have a motive. (SOUNDBITE) (German) ST GALLEN CANTONAL POLICE SPOKESMAN, HANSPETER KRUESI, SAYING: "At the moment we are not treating this as a terrorist attack, or as a politically-motivated or xenophobic crime. We have no indications of that. Neither do we have any indications that it was a crime of passion. We have absolutely no information on what the motive might have been. As far as we currently know, he acted alone." Police searched the home of the suspect but would not reveal the results of the search.
