A 26-year-old failed asylum-seeker who carried out a deadly knife attack in a Hamburg supermarket likely had a "radical Islamist" motive, German prosecutors said Monday.It was the first Islamist attack in Germany since Tunisian Anis Amri drove a truck into crowds at a Berlin Christmas market on Dec. 19, killing 12 and injuring 48 .Germany has been on high alert over the threat of an extremist assault since Amri's rampage in Berlin, for which Daesh claimed responsibility.Authorities had said earlier that Ahmad A. was deemed to be an "Islamist" but not believed to be dangerous enough to warrant being monitored by police. Hamburg's Interior Minister Andy Grote had initially said that while there could have been an Islamist motive for the attack, the suspect also suffered from "psychological instability".
