A German police officer has died from injuries sustained during a knife attack that left five others injured in Mannheim’s central square, officials said Sunday.

The 29-year-old officer was stabbed multiple times in the head and neck by a 25-year-old immigrant from Afghanistan and underwent emergency surgery after Friday’s attack, officials said.
