Several confirmed dead after vehicle drives into crowd in Germany

A vehicle drove into a group of people in the western German city of Muenster on Saturday, killing several of them including the driver.

"There are several dead, including the suspect," a police spokeswoman said.

 

A security source added: "The scenario is such that an attack cannot be ruled out."

 

Mass-selling daily Bild reported in its online edition that three people had died in the incident. It showed pictures of where police had cordoned off an area of the city.

 

The incident evoked memories of a December 2016 truck attack in Berlin that killed 12 people.

 

Anis Amri, a failed Tunisian asylum seeker with Islamist links, hijacked a truck on Dec. 19, 2016, killed the driver and then ploughed it into a crowded marketplace, killing 11 more people and injuring dozens of others.
