An Afghan asylum seeker is under arrest in Germany suspected of stabbing a woman to death because she converted to Christianity.
The victim, Fatima S. 38, was knifed on Saturday in front of a Lidl supermarket in Prien in Bavaria.
The 29-year-old migrant attacked the woman in front of her five and 11-year-old children and she later died from her wounds.
Eyewitnesses said he stabbed her in the head and then slit her throat as her cries were heard for hundreds of feet around.
One horrified witness said: ‘I heard angry cries like, ‘He has a knife, he wants to stab her! It was bad. A brave citizen tried to intervene and save the woman, everything was full of blood, it was inconceivably terrible.’
And another said the alleged perpetrator first sat on a bench opposite the supermarket entrance before he attacked.
