Accompanied by an ominous photograph of the culprit's weapons, German daily Frankfurter Allgemeinededicated its front page Monday to the stabbing of, and subsequent victory by Cologne's incoming mayor, Henriette Reker.
"Rekker wins Cologne election after assassination attempt," writes the conservative daily.
Reker — an independent candidate supported by Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party — was attacked stabbed in the neck Saturday as she campaigned at a market in Cologne. The man who carried out the attack reportedly disapproved of her welcoming stance toward refugees, according to the Kölnische Rundschau.
Frankfurter Allgemeine"s front page features a police photo a a large hunting knife and a smaller flick knife used in the attack in which four other politicians and aides were also wounded.
Early elections results show that Reker, who is in stable condition in the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery, won almost 53% of the vote.
