Police say that a man attacked passengers on a train in western Austria, seriously wounding two people.

The assault occurred early on Tuesday near the village of Sulz, in westernmost Vorarlberg province. Police say the attacker, a 60-year old German national, appeared mentally confused.

A 19-year old man suffered wounds to the stomach and back. The other victim, a 17-year old male, had a throat injury. Both were hospitalised.

Police ruled out any connection to Saturday’s incident on a Swiss train that left both the attacker and a victim dead after the man attacked passengers with a knife and burning liquid.
