A five-year-old child was stabbed to death by an Afghan national at a refugee shelter in southeastern Germany, German authorities said on Sunday.
The child's mother and a Russian national were also injured in the attack by the 41-year-old assailant after a dispute at the refugee shelter in Arnschwang, near the Czech border.
A six-year-old at the scene was also treated for shock and taken to hospital.
