BERLIN (Sputnik) — On Monday, a truck rammed into the crowd at the Berlin Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring 48 more. The country's Interior Ministry has labeled the incident a terrorist attack.
"The arrested suspect currently denies [involvement in] the #Breitscheidplatz. We are therefore particularly vigilant," the police said via Twitter, advising the public to do the same.
The disclosure follows the German press quoting a police source as saying "we have the wrong man," adding that the real perpetrator could be armed and still at large.
