At least nine people were killed and many others injured after a truck crashed into the Berlin Breitscheidplatz Christmas market on Monday evening. The driver of the truck is reportedly detained and the co-driver died.
The accident happened at around 20:00 local time (19:00 GMT), when a large Scania lorry reportedly rammed into the market close to the Kurfuerstendamm Boulevard. The police have arrested the suspected driver of the lorry.
SOT, Journalist, (German): "In your understanding, is what happened also what happened in France?"
SOT, Michael Muller, Governing Berlin mayor (German): "We cannot say it for sure yet, but it is a crazy and dramatic situation. We suspect that it was a [terrorist] attack but we cannot say it yet with 100 percent certainty. To see the dead, the injured, so many people have come here to enjoy this time, it is terrible."
