    Truck Hits Berlin Christmas Market, 9 Dead

    BERLIN — A truck ploughed into a Christmas market in central Berlin late on Monday, killing at least nine people and injuring dozens more, police said.

    The truck drove into the Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz in central Berlin’s main shopping district. The newspaper Berliner Morgenpost — whose offices are located on the square — said police suspected it was a terrorist attack, though there was no official confirmation that police were treating it as an attack.

    A man suspected of being the driver of the truck was arrested in central Berlin, based on descriptions from witnesses, a spokesman for the Berlin police said on German TV, while a second occupant of the truck died of injuries sustained in the incident.

    Horrible event for the families involved. Absolutely gut wrenching, mindless, senseless violence, shattering the lives of dozens, if not hundreds, of people.

    Unfortunately, it's not very surprising, at all.
