Children Attacked with "Irritant Gas"

Ten children and their teacher were attacked at a train station in Germany by a perpetrator using what has been referred to as an "irritant gas".

A 39 year old man apparently approached the group and sprayed them with a yet unnamed substance. The children were initially treated at the scene, having their eyes flushed and faces rinsed. Some of them were also suffering from shortness of breath. 

Eight children were taken to the Rosenhöhe hospital for observation, and two were taken to the children's hospital for more severe symptoms. Due to the number of injured the fire brigade declared the incident a mass casluaty incident in order to secure enough responders to deal with the treatment of those injured effectivley. 

The man responsible has claimed he did it because he "felt disturbed by the children." He was arrested by federal police on the spot and charged with "multiple dangerous assault". As yet there have been no reports on what the substance used by the perpetrator actually was.
