Boy, 17 arrested over fatal stabbing of teenage girl in Germany

German Authorities have arrested a 17-year-old boy in relation to the fatal stabbing of a 15-year-old girl in the Western German town of Viersen, Police said on Tuesday.

Police said that the boy had turned himself in at a police station alongside his lawyer.

The girl was subjected to a stabbing attack in a park around midday on Monday by a man who subsequently fled the scene, police said in a statement.

She died later in hospital.

The lethal attack comes just days after another teenage girl, 14-year-old Susanna F, was killed by an Iraqi refugee who then fled to his home region of Iraqi Kurdistan.

The man named only as Ali B in compliance with privacy laws was returned to Germany on Saturday. (dpa/NAN)
