A truck slammed into a Christmas market in central Berlin on Monday night, killing at least nine people and injuring many others in what police said was a deliberate attack.
The incident took place at an outdoor market near Berlin’s Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, German media reported. A suspect was arrested at the scene, according to the Associated Press and German media.
“People crushed. I am safe. I am safe,” tweeted an apparent witness, Emma Rushton.
Video footage from the scene shows stalls knocked over and people lying injured on the ground.
