A spokeswoman for Duesseldorf police Anja Kynast said the man arrested was also injured.

Police in Germany sealed off Duesseldorf's main railway station late on Thursday evening following reports of an axe attack.

Police were still looking for other possible suspects, a spokesman for the German federal police said.

According to German security services, there are about 10,000 radical Islamists in the country, of whom 1,600 have suspected links to terror groups.

The local Rheinsche Post website reported a "large-scale operation" on behalf of police.


Photos on social media show a person lying on the floor as police tape and officers cordon off part of the stations.

"I helped her wound and called her father", she said. The rail station remained shut down, he added.

Hundreds of passengers were evacuated from the station during the large scale police operation.

Authorities in Dusseldorf, Germany responded to a report of an "axe attack" at the city's train station March 9.
