ANSBACH, Germany – An 18-year-old student armed with an ax and Molotov cocktails wounded nine pupils at his high school in southern Germany on Thursday, then was shot and arrested by police, authorities said.

The teenager entered the Carolinum High School in the Bavarian town of Ansbach and threw two of the explosive devices, but they caused no major fires, fire service official Horst Settler said. Police could not confirm media reports that the attacker had lobbed Molotov cocktails into a classroom.
