An articulated lorry has ploughed into a busy Christmas market in the heart of Germany’s capital Berlin, killing 9 people and injuring many more.

Reports state that it was still unclear if it had been an attack or an accident, but policy say, a suspicious person was arrested nearby.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has been in contact with the interior minister and the mayor of Berlin, and said they are in mourning for the dead and hope that the many injured can get help.

German President Joachim Gauck said in a statement that it was an awful evening for Berlin and for the country.
