9 Dead After Truck Drives Into Christmas Market in Berlin

BERLIN — A truck driver plowed into a Christmas market late Monday in central Berlin, killing nine people and injuring several others, in what the police said they believed was an attack.

German media reported that the truck jumped the sidewalk and drove into the crowd around wooden stands at the market, which was set up around the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

Germany has not seen a large-scale terror attack, such as the ones earlier this year in Brussels and Nice, in southern France, but authorities have said that the country remains on alert.
