John Oliver's interview with the Dalai Lama is an unexpected delight

He said police were investigating whether more attackers had been involved but had no indication of that.

Photos on social media show a person lying on the floor as police tape and officers cordon off part of the stations.

He added: "Stay away from #Dusseldorf train station insane man with #axe on the lose".

One of the suspects jumped off a bridge while attempting to escape, but was arrested underneath the bridge, according to German news outlet Bild.
