    9 Dead in Berlin After Truck Drives Into Christmas Market

    BERLIN — A truck driver plowed into a crowded Christmas market late Monday on a city square in central Berlin, killing at least nine people and injuring 50 others, in what the police said they believed was an attack.

    German media reported that the truck driver jumped the sidewalk around wooden stands at the market, which was set up around the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, whose jagged spire, a reminder of the bombings during World War II, is one of the most symbolic sites in Berlin. It sits between two main streets that run through the heart of West Berlin.

    Local media reported that the driver fled the scene. Later, Berlin police said they had arrested a man near the Christmas market, but they were not immediately able to confirm whether he was the driver. The police also said a passenger was found dead in the cab of the truck.

    RIP. Terrorist are inventing new tools to kill more and more people. This is a big challenge to civilized society. Mare force using solutions to deal with terror and terrorism may not be enough. We may have to look into the the ideology which makes them fond of killing the people and device the tool to negate that ideology.
