U.S. official calls killings in Berlin Christmas market an apparent 'terrorist attack'


Nine people were killed and at least 45 others were injured Monday evening when the driver of a 40-ton truck from Poland crashed into a popular outdoor Christmas market in the heart of Berlin and smashed its way about 80 yards through the crowd.

Police said they were still investigating whether it was an intentional attack on the holiday market at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, one of dozens of such cherished pre-holiday markets throughout the city where hundreds of people gather for drinks, snacks and to shop for handmade Christmas presents.

U.S. National Security spokesman Ned Price said the U.S. condemned the “horrific incident,” which he said “appears to have been a terrorist attack.”
