    Berlin - A truck has driven into a crowd on the Berlin Christmas market at the Gedächtniskirche - the police believes this to be an attack.
    One person has died, according to a police officer. Several visitors were injured.
    The situation is still confusing. Numerous ambulances have arrived. According to "Berliner Morgenpost" the truck came from the Kantstraße / Budapest street on the area of the market.

    Recordings of a Facebook live video show destroyed boards on the Christmas market, visitors are taking care of injured ones lying on the ground.The truck apparently drove across the Christmas market in an alley and came to a halt at the Christmas tree - many meters from the entrance.In the meantime, eyewitnesses report on the social networks that they heard a loud popping sound. The cause of the sound is not known yet.

    Police evacuated the Christmas market and sealed it off. Law enforcement also set up a special area for the relatives of those injured, local media reported.

    Live, raw footage. WARNING COULD BE GRAPHIC
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016...market-berlin/
    Eyewitnesses say the incident does not look like an accident.
    Emma Rushton, who was at the market wrote on Twitter:
    We were enjoying the Xmas lights and mulled wine. We were sat, ready to get up,we heard a loud bang, we saw to our left Xmas lights torn down and we saw the top of an articulated lorry crashing through the stalls and through people.
    We wanted to get out as soon as possible. We wanted to get to a safe place. From my opinion, it was going at 40mph, there was no road nearby and no signs it was slowing down. It did not feel like an accident. There was no way it could have come off like an accident, it was through the middle of the market. The story where mulled wine was being served was crushed. I saw people bleeding, lying in the pavement.

    Dead count is up to two
    I fear the toll will rise, given the horrible look of the place.

    A lorry ploughed through a Christmas market, killing at least two people

    German police at the scene have indicated the incident is likely to be a terror attack.

    Several more people have been injured as they lay trapped beneath the vehicle, which sped through a crowd of shoppers.


    Horrific pictures and videos from Berlin show emergency services racing to the scene and the devastating aftermath as the lorry sped through the market.

    The truck is allegedly from Poland.
    The origin of the perpetrator is unknown.

    Nine people dead.
