A big lorry has ploughed into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing and injuring several people.
Police on the ground have said this is a suspected attack on German shoppers.
A witness said “people are crushed” while another said people are passed out on the ground underneath the articulated truck.
Videos and pictures emerging online have shown market stalls crushed by the huge lorry.
The driver has been arrested, according to reports.
The truck drove up the Budapester Strasse onto the footpath and came to a stop before the gigantic Norwegian Christmas fir tree erected just a week ago.
One person at the market said the truck was travelling “fast” and crashed with a loud bang.
As many as 50 people have been injured and locals are reporting several fatalities.
