Several people injured in knife attack in Vienna

At least three people were injured in a knife assault on Wednesday night in Vienna, local media reported, quoted by Dnevnik.

A fourth person was attacked with a knife nearby shortly afterward, police said: "A link (between the attacks) is part of ongoing investigations". It also houses much of Vienna's small Jewish community.

All three family members, the 67-year-old father, the 56-year-old mother and their 17-year-old daughter, suffered life-threatening injuries and were taken to the hospital.

Vienna police said the attack happened at about 7:45 p.m. (1845 GMT; 1 p.m. EST) on Praterstrasse in the heart of Vienna.

The smartphone will also have a 19:9 aspect ratio, which is more than Galaxy S9's 18.5:9 and same as Asus Zenfone 5's display. There will be a tiny notch up front, which will house the front-facing camera and the earpiece with an LED flash unit.

Authorities in Austria have detained a 23-year-old suspect Thursday in connection with knife attacks in Vienna in which four people were injured, Vienna police confirmed online.

Asked what was known about an assailant, he added: "Absolutely nothing". But they said the suspect told police he knew the Afghan man, saying he was targeted because "he holds him responsible for his previous drug addiction".

So far it is also not clear whether there is a connection between the assaults.

Till the incident, Austria had remained safe from deadly extremist attacks like the ones experienced by Paris, Berlin and Brussels since 2015.
