Attack took place at 5am local time at train station in Grafing, east of Munich

Attacker reportedly shouted "Allahu akbar" and "you infidels!"
Suspect arrested, identified as German citizen, 27
This is Germany's third knife attack with an apparent Islamist motivation since last September
This is a developing story.  Head to the Telegraph to read the whole thing but I found this part...interesting...
 Italians arrest terrorist suspects with 'plans to strike London'
Elsewhere in Europe today, Italian police have arrested two Afghan men on suspicion of planning to carry out terrorist attacks in Britain and Italy, including targets in London and the Colosseum in Rome.
The two men, named as Hakim Nasiri, 23, and Gulistan Ahmadzai, 29, were arrested in the southern city of Bari, on the Adriatic coast, writesNick Squires in Rome.

Nasiri was arrested on terrorism charges while Ahmadzai was detained on charges of aiding illegal immigration.
Police are searching for three other suspects involved in the same alleged plot.
Police found photos and videos of Rome and London on the suspects' mobile phones, including images of the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus - Rome's ancient chariot racing arena and a venue for concerts and sports events.
In London, they had allegedly photographed apartments, a health centre, restaurants and a hotel at West India Quay; the Sunborn Yacht Hotel in Royal Victoria Dock, a luxury hotel inside a yacht; the South Quay footbridge to Canary Wharf; and an Ibis hotel in Victoria Dock Road.
Police claim the men had a long list of potential targets, including airports, ports, shopping centres and hotels.
Europe will burn this summer.  I hope our force protection officers are acting now.  Correction.  If they've waited this late to plan then they're already behind the eight ball.

Does the Army have closed bases in Europe anymore?  If not then its just a matter of time till some terrorist scum decide to target dependents, with a worse case scenario being a DoD school.
