German security services faced criticism in the aftermath of the Christmas market attack, initially arresting the wrong suspect. Did they make mistakes? Michael Böhl, VP of the national association of German criminal investigators, speaks to DW.
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.
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.
Potsdam's Christmas market was hurriedly cleared as the bomb squad disabled a suspicious package nearby. Police are trying to determine whether the object was a real explosive device or a dummy.
