Monday night, a tractor-trailer truck plowed into a bustling Christmas market in Berlin, Germany, killing at least nine people — possibly many more — and wounding scores of others.
UPDATE: Local police now confirm 12 people were killed and 48 others injured in the attack.
According to reports from local media, police believe the incident to be an attack, and are treating it as a terror incident.
“It looked like [it was done] on purpose,” a police officer who witnessed the incident told Berliner Zeitung.
“Lorry just ploughed through Christmas market in #berlin. There is no road nearby. People crushed. I am safe. I am safe,” tweeted Emma Rushton with a picture from the chaotic scene. There is, indeed, a road nearby the market, so it is unclear what Rushton meant.
