No other injuries have so far been reported.

Minutes before he was shot, he was heard to shout “Allah Akbar” meaning God is great in Arabic.

He repeated the phrase before detonating a bomb, which was concealed in a suitcase. The explosion was not a significant one and no deaths occurred but it caused mass panic around the vicinity as people fled from the station.
