Why did the U-boat sink the Lusitana killing 1198 civilians including 128 Americans?

The (British) Lusitania had been known to transport troops, arms and ammunitions on behalf of Britain on earlier crossings. The Germans therefore considered it an auxiliary war ship of the British and before it sailed, had warned Americans that the ship might be treated as an enemy warship. Those 128 Americans nevertheless took the risk, because the Lusitania was one of the fastest ships around and normally could outrun a German torpedo.
