Four people were seriously wounded in two knife attacks in one district of Vienna on Wednesday evening but any motive or connection between the assaults was unclear, a police spokesman said.

The stabbings — the first of which took place at 7:45 p.m. (1845 GMT), occurred in Vienna’s Second District, which includes the famous Prater park as well as the Praterstern transport hub. It also houses much of Vienna’s small Jewish community.
