Bloody attack in North Rhine-Westphalia: In a dispute, a 15-year-old in Siegen stabbed 47 years old with a knife several times in the upper body.

An emergency doctor had already treated the injured person. The 47-year-old man came to a hospital – where he finally died. The injuries were obviously very heavy.
