No details were immediately released about the identity of the victims other than that the person killed was male.

Detectives in Britain's second city of Birmingham on Sunday launched a hunt for a knifeman who killed one and critically injured two in a series of random stabbings over several hours.

Five others suffered minor injuries in the attacks, which happened at four separate locations in the busy city centre between 12.30am and 2.30am.

One of the areas was in the heart of Birmingham's Gay Village but officers ruled out a hate crime. They also rejected any links to gang violence and terrorism.

"It does appear to be random in terms of the people that were attacked," said Chief Superintendent Steve Graham of West Midlands police. "This is being treated as a homicide."

No details were immediately released about the identity of the victims other than that the person killed was male, and the two people critically injured are a man and a woman.
