The Turkish ambassador to Germany has called for a thorough investigation into an attack on two schoolgirls in Illerkirchberg, a small town near the southern city of Ulm.

The crime had deeply shaken the Turkish community, said Ahmet Basar Sen during a visit to the crime scene on Tuesday.

“Who did this? Will it be solved?” he asked, pledging his support to the investigation.

A 27-year-old man allegedly attacked two schoolgirls, presumably with a knife, on Monday.

One of the two young girls later died. The other was hospitalized with serious injuries.

The Interior Ministry confirmed that the girl who died had German citizenship and a Turkish family background.

Police have arrested a suspect, identified as an asylum seeker from Eritrea.

The Turkish ambassador visited the bereaved girl’s parents and offered his condolences on behalf of the Turkish community.
