A hand-drawn Daesh flag was found during a search in the room of an Afghan refugee who attacked passengers on a train in Germany, Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said Tuesday.

BERLIN (Sputnik) — Earlier, the refugee armed with an axe attacked passengers of the train, injuring three of them.

The attacker, a 17-year-old teenager from Afghanistan, was shot dead by police.

"The search of the room he used to live in during the last time revealed a hand-drawn flag of the Islamic State," Herrmann said, as quoted by the German ARD broadcaster. 

He also confirmed the reports that the attacker shouted "Allahu Akbar" during the attack.
