Police in Germany say there are "no clues" for a motive for Saturday's van attack in Muenster


 
Police in Germany say there are "no clues" pointing to a possible motive for Saturday's van attack in Muenster.

 
They are investigating "all possible avenues", said the north-western city's senior prosecutor, Martin Botzenhardt.


On Saturday authorities all but ruled out any Islamist connections for the suspect, a German citizen who shot and killed himself.


Police also identified the two victims killed in the incident as a 51-year-old woman and a 65-year-old man.


The woman was from near Lueneburg in the north of the country, while the man was from Borken near Muenster.
