An Eritrean migrant was arrested on Monday after reportedly shoving an 8-year-old boy and his mother into an oncoming high-speed train at Germany's Frankfurt railway station.

From AFP:
An eight-year-old boy died on Monday and his mother was injured when a man pushed them in front of a train in Germany's Frankfurt railway station, police said.

The suspect, a 40-year-old man of African origin who was unrelated to the victims, ran off but was overpowered by passers-by and detained by police.

The woman was being treated in hospital after narrowly escaping from the tracks as an arriving ICE high speed train ran over her child.

Police said they had opened a murder inquiry and were questioning the suspect for a possible motive.

[...] According to news channel NTV, the suspect is a citizen of Eritrea.
The AFP accused the "far-right" of pouncing on the attack:
The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party quickly linked the case to a mass influx of migrants and refugees in recent years.

"The hideousness of this act can hardly be surpassed," wrote the party's Alice Weidel on Twitter, demanding that the government "finally start to protect the citizens of this country". reported that a witness told them the station was "full of children," according to Voice of Europe.

"The boy's mother was able to save herself by rolling into a narrow gap between tracks, but she lost hold of her son who was fatally hit by the oncoming train," Voice of Europe reported.

Here's a video report on the attack from Bild as translated by Vlad Tepes Blog:

A similar attack was carried out last week "in which a 34-year-old woman was pushed in front of a train and killed in Voerde in northern Germany," the AP reported. "The suspect in that case, a German-born Serb, is in custody."
