Yesterday there was an attack in Berlin at a crowded Christmas market. According to KTLA5, 12 people have passed away and 48 people were injured in the attack.
It now appears that the truck, registered in Poland and loaded with a cargo of heavy steel beams, was hijacked and used as a deadly battering ram in Breitscheidplatz, a major public square, in west Berlin.
The man found inside the truck was shot dead, and has been confirmed as a Polish citizen.

The man arrested in connection with the suspected terror attack on a crowded Berlin Christmas market which killed 12 people, has been identified by local media as a 23-year-old Pakistani refugee.
The suspect is being interrogated and denies involvement in the attack, Germany’s interior minister said.
“Naved B” had been living in Flughfen Tempelhof – an old airport that had been converted into a refugee centre – and was detained last night following the attack.
