    Polish military police have begun patrolling public places in Warsaw along with city police forces following the truck attack in Berlin, Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said Thursday.

    WARSAW (Sputnik) — On Monday, a truck rammed into the crowd at a Berlin Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring over 40 others.

    "We are in the pre-holiday time, people are shopping in shopping malls, travel. In this regard, the military gendarmerie, together with the Polish police patrol railway stations, airports, shopping malls, Warsaw underground. We are talking about safety here," Blaszczak said.

    He stressed that local law enforcement was ready to provide the security for the citizens as contrasted with Germany where such patrols were absent.
