Switzerland's Office of the Attorney General has started criminal proceedings in connection with the Berlin Christmas market lorry attack which left 12 people dead.
The proceedings are based on suspected support of a criminal organisation and a violation of the country's ban on so-called Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.
However, the proceedings are against "unknown", which implies the authorities do no know precisely who, or how many people, could be involved.
A 34-year-old woman has died and two girls are in a serious condition a day after being attacked on a Swiss train by a man armed with a knife and flammable fluid, police said.
The suspected attacker also died of his injuries, police said.
The girls, aged 6 and 17-years-old are in serious condition.
Five people were stabbed or burned during the attack by a 27-year-old Swiss man on the train nearing the Salez station on a trip between Buchs and Sennwald in St Gallen.
"The motive remains unclear," police said in a statement. "There is currently none that can be found."
