Reuters reported: Speaking on German public television, Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said it was too early to speculate about the motives of the attacker, who he said was believed to have been living in a home for unaccompanied minors in Ochsenfurt, near the city of Wuerzburg. He did state that a hand-drawn ISIS flag was found in the attacker’s room.

German media, citing a spokesman for the Bavarian interior ministry, reported that the man had shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) during the attack, but neither Herrmann nor Hench said they could confirm that.

 “There are witnesses that suggest there may be an Islamic background to this but that is far from clear at this point, ” Herrmann said.

 Germany welcomed roughly 1 million migrants in 2015, including thousands of unaccompanied minors. Many were fleeing war in countries like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
