Law enforcement officials have said there are currently no signs that the stabbings are connected to the killing of nine people by a gunman in February.

A 43-year-old man with racist views shot dead nine people with foreign roots in the town's shisha bars, an attack that sent shockwaves around Germany.

The assailant subsequently killed his mother before taking his own life.
