A huge truck plowed into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin, killing at least 12 people. A suspect who had fled the scene was arrested after the attack but now police are uncertain whether he was the perpetrator.
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.
One year on from the Christmas market terrorist attack, people affected are set to get more money and better help. It's the latest step in efforts to make up for a poor initial response to the tragic events in Berlin.
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.
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."
