German police have arrested a man in Munich after four people were lightly injured by a knife attacker.
Police said the suspect lashed out at five men and one woman around Rosenheimer Platz in the east of the city, but missed two of his targets.
A police spokeswoman said the detained man strongly resembled descriptions given by witnesses at the scene.
The suspect is said to have started attacking passers-by shortly after 06:00 local time (08:00 GMT).
"We have arrested a person who very strongly resembles the description by witnesses, but we cannot confirm that he is the attacker," Munich police spokesman Marcus da Gloria Martins said.
Martins added that police had not been able to establish any motive for the attack.None of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries.
Witness accounts described the suspect as a man in his 40s, unshaven, with grey trousers and a green tracksuit top and carrying a backpack and sleeping mat.
Police said he fled the scene on a bicycle....
Fly-half Rhys Priestland says he still has ambitions of a Wales recall for the autumn internationals but admits he "doesn't know where he stands".
Priestland has won 48 caps, but last played for Wales in June 2016.
"If the call comes it would be great," he told BBC Radio 5 live."You're asking me a question I don't know the answer to."
It means the likes of Priestland are eligible for selection without any caveats, although the player is in the dark about whether he is on the verge of a return to the Wales fold.
"I don't know where I stand, so I can't really comment on that," he said.England fly-half George Ford's departure to Leicester has seen Priestland make the Bath 10 role his own
Priestland is in his third season at the Rec after joining in the summer of 2015, but spent the first two campaigns as deputy to England fly-half George Ford.
However, Ford's departure for Leicester has meant more regular starts for the former Scarlets playmaker and his form has drawn comparisons with the World Cup of 2011, when he spearheaded Wales' march to the semi-finals.
"I'm really enjoying how it's going," Priestland said."I'm not sure if I'm better than I was in 2011.Probably not - I'm not in the Wales squad."
Priestland kicked six penalties in difficult conditions at Parc y Scarlets to give Bath a second win in two Champions Cup matches.
"I have played a few years down here and I can never tell which way the wind is going," Priestland added."I think that's why my stats have been so bad over the years - but I am happy with how things went.
"It puts us in a good position in the group ahead of Toulon back to back."...
A man who gave his "favourite" £120 trainers to a barefoot homeless man says the act has inspired other good deeds after his story was shared around the world.
Craig Wells ran out of a restaurant in Nottingham after seeing the homeless man, Mark, walk past wearing no shoes.
He said Mark "started to cry and gave me the biggest hug" after the gift.
Mr Wells shared a photo on Facebook to encourage other people to "pass it on" and help someone in need.
"If someone is encouraged to step out and help someone in need by this message then Love wins!!!"
Since then, the photo has been shared more than 4,000 times and liked more than 9,000 times.
Mr Wells said it resulted in "hundreds of private messages" from people "all over the world".
One man from Jakarta in Indonesia told Mr Wells he had gone out and bought lunch for a homeless person.
"It may sound a bit fluffy but love really does make a difference in a world," said Mr Wells.
He said he had also heard from several members of Mark's family who thanked him for "being so kind".
Mr Wells, who describes himself as a "committed Christian" and attends Christian Life Church in Chesterfield, said he simply wants to "open people's eyes and offer hope to the homeless and other people in need"....
Storm Brian has hit the UK with gale-force winds and high seas - though the weather is not as bad as predicted.
Gusts of over 70mph were recorded on Saturday morning, with forecasters warning of the potential for flooding, power cuts and transport disruption.
The storm comes after three people were killed and hundreds of thousands of people - mostly in the Irish Republic - were left without power after the remnants of Storm Ophelia battered the British Isles after weakening from its earlier hurricane force.
Gusts were predicted to reach 80mph (130km/h) there, Irish weather agency Met Éireann said.
It has issued an orange warning - its second most severe alert - in seven Irish counties.
But the winds due there "won't be anywhere near as strong as Storm Ophelia," the weather agency said.Image copyright PA Image caption
In Wales, trains and ferries have been cancelled and seafront roads closed.
The strongest wind gust has been measured in Mumbles, to the west of Swansea, at 71mph.
Natural Resources Wales said the coastline was likely to be "extremely dangerous this weekend" - with the Met Office predicting gusts of 60mph (96km/h) to 70mph (112km/h).
Ceredigion council has also warned people to "keep away" from seafronts and "be careful" on low-lying land where coastal flooding is possible.
The Met Office's chief forecaster, Dan Suri, said gusts inland could also reach between 45mph (72km/h) and 55mph (88km/h).Image caption
In addition to the flood warnings, the Environment Agency has issued more than 40 flood alerts - meaning flooding is possible - most of which are in the west and south-west of England.
Flood barriers have been put in place in areas including Fowey in Cornwall, but Frank Newell, from the Environment Agency, said the surge had been lower than forecast.
"In terms of impact, we've had spray overtopping quaysides, but we don't have at the moment any reported property flooding," he said.Image copyright Rodders - BBC Weather Watcher Image caption
In England, South Western Railway has put a temporary speed restriction in place in both Hampshire and Dorset, and confirmed a tree had blocked the line between Fareham and Southampton - though this has now been cleared.
Speed restrictions are also operating on the Gatwick Express, Southern Rail and Thameslink, with some reduced services to ease congestion.Image copyright Porthcawl Lifeboats Image caption
The Environment Agency's national flood duty manager, Ben Lukey, warned people against posing for photos during the hazardous conditions.
He said:"We urge people to stay safe along the coast and warn against putting yourself in unnecessary danger by taking 'storm selfies' or driving through flood water - just 30cm (11in) is enough to move your car."
