German bus attack suspect originally from Iran: local newspaper

BERLIN (Reuters) - A man suspected of injuring several people in a knife attack on a bus in Luebeck on Friday is originally from Iran but is now a German citizen and has lived in the northern city for years, the Luebecker Nachrichten newspaper said.

Without citing a source, the paper added that the interior minister of Schleswig-Holstein, the state where Luebeck is located, did not assume there was a terrorist motive for the attack.
