At least 12 people died in the alleged attack, while almost 50 others sustained injuries. The driver fled the scene, but police say they have arrested a suspect they believe was at the wheel. The passenger in the vehicle died at the scene.

But the motivation behind the deadly episode remains unclear. Still, the President-elect was quick to blame Isis and radical Islamist groups – before investigators could issue any confirmation.

"Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today's horrifying terror attack in Berlin,” Trump said.  “Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday.”

He added: “Isis and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad.

“These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.”
