German police have shot dead an Iraqi man who had wounded a policewoman with a knife, with prosecutors saying he was a suspected "Islamist."
Police were called Thursday after reports a man was acting aggressively toward other people in the Berlin district of Spandau. The man stabbed a female officer before another officer shot and killed him.
Media reports say the man was given a prison sentence by a court in Stuttgart in 2008 and that he belonged to a terrorist organization.
The man was free on bail, but he was ordered to wear an electronic tag, which he removed before the attack.
