World leaders condemn the attack on a Berlin Christmas market. The city honors the victims with a special church service.
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.
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.
Security has been tightened, but otherwise things were relaxed at the site of the 2016 terror attack that claimed 12 lives. DW's Jefferson Chase was on hand for the market's first day - and he wasn't the only one.
The proposed service would allow border guards and police to simultaneously search multiple systems across the EU to verify identity documents. EU officials hope part of the system will become operational next year.
