    A Syrian man killed a woman with a machete and wounded two others outside a bus station in Germany Sunday before being arrested, NBC News reported.

    The 21-year-old asylum seeker, who was known to police, was having an argument with the woman at the central Omnibus station in Reutlingen before attacking her at about 4:30 p.m. The suspect, whose name was not released, wounded another woman and a man as he fled, according to local police.

    The woman died of her injuries at the scene, officials said.

    The attack comes as Germany remains on edge following a rampage in Munich, where nine people were killed by an 18-year-old gunman at a city shopping center Friday. Days before, an Afghan teen attacked passengers on a train, severely injuring at least three people.
