Merkel Says Must Assume Berlin Market Carnage Was Terrorist Attack

Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she assumes the deadly truck assault on a crowded Berlin Christmas market was a terrorist attack.

“This is a very difficult day for Germany,” Merkel said on Tuesday after 12 people were killed, including a Polish passenger found shot dead in the lorry, and around 50 were injured in Monday’s attack.

“We must assume from the current position that it was a terrorist attack”, dpa quoted the chancellor as saying.
