A truck ploughed into a crowded Christmas market in the German capital Berlin on Monday evening, killing nine people and injuring up to 50 others.

According to local police, the first indications pointed to a terrorist attack on the market, situated at the foot of the ruined Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church.

The incident evoked memories of an attack on Nice in France in July when Tunisian-born man drove a 19-tonne truck along the beach front, mowing down people who had gathered to watch the fireworks on Bastille Day, killing 86 people. The attack was claimed by Islamic State.

The truck careered into the Berlin market at what would have been one of the most crowded times, when adults and children would be gathering in the traditional cluster of wooden huts that sell food and Christmas goods.

“I heard a big noise and then I moved on the Christmas market and saw much chaos…many injured people,” Jan Hollitzer, deputy editor in chief of Berliner Morgenpost, told CNN. “It was really traumatic.”

    Well I wonder if there will be another attempt om Merkel’s live again after this! She’s had 2, and this socialist NWO POS needs to go, she’s been the worst thing to happen to that country since Hitler! She’s their Obama!

      True words.

    The inevitable result when a government refuses to defend its country’s borders.

    When will the German people ever realize that globalists like Merkel and Obama and many others, will only destroy their country. They invite terrorist into their country to help their agenda. They must think they will be able to control them later, after real damage and confusion has been achieved. These people are to stupid to run countries. After President Trump takes office he needs make an executive decision to rid DC of Obama and his shadow government, placing them at Guantanamo would be a nice touch. Or maybe we will get lucky and someone will catch obama at one of his treason actions and take him out.

      If they haven’t figured it out by now, they never will.

      You do realize that YOU helped create ISIS and the refugee problem by voting for Bush?Cheney regime. Too bad its always the innocent that die and not those who created the problem.

      • ArcticGrayling

        Germans created the problem by not defending their own border against those low life goat fuckers….by the use of lethal force if necessary.

      • David Hummel

        You poor ignorant bastard, looks like everyone is still ignoring you… maybe this will help…
        This is all obama, under estimating the JV team, and drawing the redline in the sand and not doing anything but sticking his head in the sand when the line was crossed.

        Bush’s surge had defeated al Qaeda in 2007, peace in the middle east was beginning to happen and then obama pulls out the small peace keeping force left in Iraq, and ISIS arises in 2011 thanks to the bumbling clod, obama and his administration of no nothings.
        But you can continue to believe what you want troll… and damn that Bush, it’s his fault, will be the epitaph of all the poor liberal progressive commucrats, you poor saps.

      They destroy us in the process. Obama FOR GITMO.
