A lorry (truck) plowed into the busy market, killing at least 9 people and injuring at least 50 others, some of whom were trapped beneath the vehicle as the truck sped through the crowd of shoppers.
The attack happened at around 8:00 p.m. local time, coming only an hour after the Russian ambassador to Turkey was assassinated in Ankara.
The local newspapers, Berliner Zeitung and the Berliner Morgenpost reported that the truck ran into the market outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.
UPDATE: The driver of the truck (a "semi") was originally thought to have been captured after a manhunt, but apparently is still on the run.
There was also a passenger aboard who was killed.
