Residents living in the Germany city of Stuttgart are feeling shock and horror after a 36-year-old man was hacked to death by a Syrian migrant wielding what appears to have been a traditional Japanese sword in the middle of the street, in broad daylight, on Wednesday afternoon.

The gruesome incident apparently took place after a heated argument between the two which escalated quickly.

The attack was witnessed by dozens of local residents and was even filmed by multiple passers-by on mobile phones from various angles, and saw, the German resident of Kazakhstan origin,

lying on the pavement while the Syrian hacked at and stabbed him with a “sword-like” weapon, the German newspaper Bild reports.
