On Monday evening, a man, presumably drunk, attacked the 57-year-old Mayor of Altena in Germany, Andreas Holstein, with a knife. Before he hit the mayor with a large knife, he was loudly criticizing the mayor’s asylum policy. A shop employee, who wanted to help the mayor, was also wounded.

The politician was wounded in the neck and hospitalized, later he was released and sent home. His life is not in danger. It is reported that he have contacted his friends from the hospital and told them about the help he has received.

The mayor honored the actions of the owner of the diner and his son, claiming that without their help he would not have survived the attack.

“I’m not sure if I would still be alive,” mayor said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that she was shocked by the knife attack on the mayor of the German town of Altena in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said Tuesday.

Andreas Holstein is in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU) party.

Security services proceed from the fact that the attacker had political motives. According to preliminary information, the attacker is a German citizen.

The town is known for accepting more migrants than its quota.
