People in the German capital are trying to get back to normal after the truck attack at a Christmas market. The so-called "Islamic State" has taken responsibility for the attack.
Shortly before the anniversary of the 2016 Berlin terror attack, Chancellor Angela Merkel has paid a surprise visit to Breitscheidtplatz's Christmas market. Survivors recently criticized Merkel's handling of the attack.
Police in Berlin have said that two bags of bullets found near a Christmas market in western Berlin had no link to terrorist activities. The munitions were uncovered in an underground car park.
The chancellor's spokesman has announced plans for Angela Merkel to meet with the relatives of those killed in last year's Christmas market attack. In a critical letter, the relatives accused her of "political inaction."
Relatives of 12 people killed in last year's terror attack at a Berlin Christmas market said they have been "left in the lurch" by the German chancellor. They said she has never expressed personal condolences.
