German authorities said they had found the hand-painted ISIS flag among the belongings of the asylum-seeker, who seriously injured four members of a family of tourists from Hong Kong on his rampage. The assailant was killed by police as he tried to flee.Two of the victims were critically hurt, said Joachim Herrmann, the interior minister of the state of Bavaria.Germany has thus far escaped the kind of large-scale extremist attack seen in the southern French city of Nice last week, in which 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel used a truck to mow down 84 people. That attack was also claimed by ISIS without the assailant having any clear ties to the group.Germany has been spared major Islamist attacks but in May, a mentally unstable 27-year-old man wielding a knife killed one person and injured three others on another Bavarian regional train.Herrmann however warned against tarring all asylum-seekers with the same brush.
