Deadly attack at German school

Teacher is killed and another person seriously injured in reported knife attack.

    The school was evacuated after the attack, which took place at around 0900 GMT.

    Security has been tightened at schools across the country after 17-year-old Tim Kretschmer went on a rampage at his former school last March, killing 15 people before turning his gun on himself in a shoot-out with police.
