Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A man armed with a chain­saw in­jured at least five peo­ple in an at­tack in a Swiss town yes­ter­day, lo­cal me­dia re­ported. The Blick news site said po­lice, am­bu­lances and a he­li­copter had rushed to the scene in Schaffhausen and had sealed off the area. Wit­nesses, in­clud­ing a lo­cal shop man­ager, told Blick the at­tacker was wield­ing a chain­saw and that busi­nesses and pedes­tri­ans had been evac­u­ated. Po­lice told mul­ti­ple lo­cal me­dia out­lets there had been an at­tack but of­fi­cers have not con­firmed that a chain­saw was used.
