Default At least 9 dead after truck plows into crowded Christmas market in Berlin

They didn't say yet who the driver was, but I'll bet my left nut I know what religion he practices.

At least 9 dead after truck plows into crowded Christmas market in Berlin | Fox News

A truck plowed into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin on Monday, killing at least nine and injuring more than 50 in what police believe was a deliberate attack, and one that was a chilling echo of the July incident in Nice in which 86 people were slain by a terrorist.

A large Scania truck rammed into the market outside the capital's popular Christmas market at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church on Monday evening.

The man suspected to be the driver of the truck was arrested several hundred years from the scene and in being questions by police, police siad. A passenger in the truck was confirmed dead at the scene.

No further details were immediately available.

Police said they are still investigating whether the crash was an accident or an attack.

It comes less than a month after a U.S. State Department calling for caution in markets and other public places, saying extremist groups including Islamic State and al-Qaida were focusing "on the upcoming holiday season and associated events."

Scott Stewart, vice president of tactical analysis for global intelligence firm Stratfor, told FoxNews.com recently that Christmas markets during the month of December were easy targets for terrorists.

“It’s obvious that the threat will always remain,” he said, “but with the holidays and many of the Christmas markets that are normally set up this time of year, it proves to be a tempting soft target.”Western Europe cracks down amid fears of holiday attacks

Islamic State and al-Qaida have both called on followers to use trucks in particular to attack public places. On July 14, a truck plowed into a Bastille Day crowd in the southern French city of Nice, killing 86 people. Islamic State claimed responsibility for that attack, which was carried out by a Tunisian living in France.

Footage of the scene showed a large Scania truck with its windshield smashed out on the sidewalk alongside the market, with a swarm of ambulances nearby. A large Christmas tree with a gold star on top was toppled over nearby in the street.

Witness Mike Fox told The Associated Press at the scene that the large truck missed him by only about three meters as it drove into the market, tearing through tables and wooden stands.

"It was definitely deliberate," said the tourist from Birmingham, England.

He said he helped people who appeared to have broken limbs, and that others were trapped under Christmas stands.

Police and rescue workers swarmed the scene after the incident blocking access to the market itself, and firetrucks and ambulances whizzed by.

Western Europe cracks down amid fears of holiday attacks

Last month, a Christmas market in Ludwigshafen was the target of a bombing attempt.

Prosecutors said a 12-year-old boy of Iraqi heritage attempted to blow up a device at the local Christmas market on November 26, the Local reported. The device failed to detonate and so he tried again on December 5.

The device was hidden in a rucksack filed with nails and placed in a bush near the town hall.

Prosecutors said a pedestrian spotted the bag and alerted police, who carried out a controlled explosion.

According to Focus magazine, the 12-year-old boy was born in Rhineland-Palatinate in 2004 and had encouraged to carry out the attack by an as-of-yet unknown member of ISIS.

The Associated Press contributed to report.

I'm guessing the Obama Admin will, immediately, call this "Street-Place Violence"...

This is one of those few times Liberals become very religious and start praying to God...

"Dear Lord...Let it be a Christian.....PLEASE let it be a Christian!"...

If this is a refugee, Merkel will look like an idiot (more of one than she already is) because she's been a huge proponent of allowing them into her country.

I don't understand this. Obama assured us refugees were nothin' but widows and orphans.
