    Some five months after the knife attack in a supermarket in Hamburg with one dead and six wounded, the accused Islamist confessed to the bloody deed, the Berliner Zeitung reported.

    The attorney of the rejected asylum seeker read out a confession at the opening of the trial in the Hamburg Higher Regional Court. “He emphatically pleads guilty on all charges”, he noted. “The deeds had, in his view, a religious motivation.”

    According to the Federal Attorney, the perpetrator acted within a jihadist mindset. He wanted to kill as many German citizens of Christian faith as possible. The representative of the Federal Attorney said, reading out the indictment: “He made this decision as a contribution to worldwide Jihad.”

    The attacker had stormed into an Edeka supermarket and lethally wounded one person. Upon fleeing, he wounded four more people. Matthias P., 50 years old, was shopping for groceries in the Edeka store, when Ahmad Alhaw randomly murdered him without prior warning.

    Prosecution deem him fully criminally liable and has accused Ahmad Alhaw of murder, attempted murder, and grievous battery in six cases.

    His attorney said that his client was under high pressure when he committed the deeds. Ahmad Alhaw further declared that he was not going to answer questions about the details of the deeds.

    He instead spoke about his life. He started studying dental medicine, but quitted. His mother was a teacher. He came to Germany to work and to make a living.

    “I had the impression that I wasn’t welcome”, he said, according to an interpreter who was translating from Arabic.

    He also refused to answer questions regarding the consummation of alcohol or drugs, and insisted on speaking about religion and about ISIS. He also refused to comment on his statements in his first interrogations. “In the first three days, I was wounded, and unable to concentrate.”

    The rejected asylum seeker had stabbed a 50-year-old to death and then wounded six more people. A small, self-made ISIS flag was found in his refugee accommodation. The terror militia did not claim the knife attack at the time.
