MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. Investigators say the truck deliberately drove into the crowd at a Christmas market in Berlin killing 12 people, city police wrote on its Twitter page on Tuesday.
Unsere Ermittler gehen davon aus, dass der LKW vorsätzlich in die Menschenmenge auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt am #Breitscheidplatz gesteuert wurde— PolizeiBerlinEinsatz (@PolizeiBerlin_E) 20 December 2016
It was earlier reported that nine people were killed in the crash.
Forty-eight people were hospitalized, some of them in a serious condition, the police said.
A truck has crashed into the crowd at the Christmas market in the central part of West Berlin ― on Breitscheidplatz near the Kurfurstendamm street. The incident occurred at 8:20pm. The truck drove around 80 meters through the market.
The police preliminarily classified the incident as "an attack," but Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere admitted that a terrorist attack is not ruled out.
