They warned people to stay away from the area. Witnesses said the attack happened at a branch of Edeka, Germany’s largest supermarket chain, BBC added.

The man ran into a supermarket in the Barmbek neighbourhood and attacked customers with a knife at around 3pm British time, the Telegraph reported.
