Berlin, Apr 12 (AP) Police say a woman and her child have died after being stabbed by her ex-husband at a busy subway station in central Hamburg.

The knife attack happened this morning at the Jungfernstieg station in Germany’s second-biggest city. Parts of the train lines were temporarily shut down as police responded.
