Swiss authorities have already ruled out terrorism as a motive for an armed Iranian ‘asylum seeker’ taking more than a dozen hostages aboard a train this week, according to reports.

The shocking incident unfolded at around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday in the canton of Vaud in Switzerland. 

A man wielding an ax and knife took 14 passengers and a train driver hostage inside a train car that was stopped at the Essert-sous-Champvent station near Yverdon-les-Bains.

During a standoff that lasted nearly four hours, the Iranian allegedly professed a desire to commit terror attacks in Great Britain. 

Multiple videos shot both inside and outside the train have been circulating on social media. 

A hostage negotiator communicated with the Iranian in Farsi but an agreement could not be reached. 

Eventually, special forces used explosives to distract the Iranian while storming the train and shooting him dead. 

“As the hostage-taker rushed with his axe in the direction of the intervention group, a police officer used his weapon to protect the hostages, fatally hitting the perpetrator,” a spokesman for the cantonal police explained. 

None of the hostages were injured during the harrowing ordeal. 

“According to initial information, the 32-year-old man is an Iranian asylum seeker assigned to canton Neuchâtel who speaks Farsi and English,” SwissInfo reports. 

The intervention reportedly required nearly 100 law enforcement officers and rescue workers. 

Authorities claim the motive for the attack is unclear but have ruled out terrorism
