The attack came after Wilders, a far right campaigner against Islam, canceled plans to hold a competition last week of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed and had a clear “terrorist motive,” prosecutors said.
“He named Wilders, but did not say anything about the cartoon competition,” a statement said. “Up to now there is no evidence the suspect worked with others.”
The victims, both 38-year-old men, are still being treated at a hospital. The suspect, who was shot and wounded by police, was also being treated, and his custody was extended Monday for two weeks.
Prosecutors said German police had searched the man’s home in Germany and seized computer memory devices.
