German police swarmed the main train station in the city of Dusseldorf after an ax attack left several people injured, authorities said.

As many as five people are reported to have been hurt, although the extent of their injuries is not yet known.

Anti-terror police cordoned off Central Station station in Dusseldorf, Germany after reports of the attack.

Counter-terrorism police were reportedly dispatched to the scene and were able to arrest two people.

A spokesman for federal police says two suspected attackers were arrested after the attack that took place at about 9 p.m. Thursday.




Shocking images show injured passengers lying on the floor in the station, surrounded by paramedics.

German authorities have been on the alert for terror attacks, especially since an attack claimed by the Islamic State group in December when a hijacked truck ploughed into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people.

Bruno Macedo tweeted: 'Man with axe chased by police in Dusseldorf.

The train station remains closed and trains have been diverted.
