Berlin Police Release Man Detained In Deadly Christmas Market Crash
Police arrested a suspect, a migrant from Pakistan, but officials say they might have the wrong man in custody.
Police in Germany say at least 12 people are dead and at least 48 others are injured after a semi-truck drove through a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday evening.
Local outlets report the truck plowed through a crowded street market near the famous Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. Authorities say they believe the crash was intentional, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel said it was presumably "an act of terrorism."
The truck belongs to a Polish company. The owner of the company said it might have been hijacked. Police arrested a suspect, a migrant from Pakistan, but released him Tuesday because there was a lack of evidence.
