    Deadly Truck Attack in Berlin (93)

    Wolfgang Bosbach, a German lawmaker from the ruling Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party said that the deadly truck attack in Berlin was an act of "endless cruelty" and "absolute atrociousness."

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The German society should prepare for a long-time and severe struggle against terrorism, but this fight should not change the national lifestyle significantly since this is the goal of extremists, a German lawmaker from the ruling Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    On Monday, a truck rammed into the crowd at a Berlin Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring 49 more. The country's interior ministry has labeled the incident a terrorist attack.

    "We have to set our minds on a very long-time and fierce fight… We should not close, we should not hide during the public events… we should not give up joyful life, because the goal of terrorists is to make us do it," Wolfgang Bosbach said commenting on the act of violence.

    He added that the deadly truck attack in Berlin was an act of "endless cruelty" and "absolute atrociousness."

    According to Bosbach, the deadly attacks would barely stop and the Germans should exert efforts to increase the security in their country.
