Angrepet virket helt umotivert. Vitner forteller om forferdelige scener. Blod på gulvet, raserte rom.
One witness to the bloodshed, who asked not to be named, described how a man in a camouflage jacket started attacking patients in the waiting room at random.
«He lunged towards me and then stepped backwards,» she said. «I only saw him attack the one guy.
«He had greasy hair, glasses and he had a camouflage coat at that that point. It was completely random. He was waving the knife at anybody.
«One guy in particular stood up and tried to stop him and he got cut. I think he was trying to diffuse it and he stabbed him. He has saved people, really.»
Samme scene utspant seg på det andre helsesenteret
«I had pulled up just after 11 so he was still in there, he must have been in there for up to half an hour. He stabbed two people.
A man was then led out by police wearing what was described as «Speedos».
