After the terrorist attack on a Christmas market in Berlin in December 2016, many victims feel abandoned by the state. They claim Chancellor Angela Merkel and other members of the government have not expressed their condolences.
Police are searching for a man who opened fire near a Christmas market in the French city of Strasbourg. So far, two people have died from their injuries and at least 12 are injured.
Dresden's Striezelmarkt, which claims to be Germany's oldest, opens this Wednesday (Nov, 28) for the 584th time. As on other German Christmas Markets, here too, security is a permanent fixture.
Christmas markets are a highlight of the holidays for Germans, but attempts to keep them safe could disrupt the magic. The site of Berlin's devastating 2016 truck attack has now become a testing area for heavy security.
German court documents show details about the life and criminality of the suspected Strasbourg gunman. French investigators say the suspect was radicalized in prison and was on a watch list.
