Multiple Casualties And Injuries After Van Attack In Germany
On Saturday, a van slammed into a large group of people in Muenster, Germany, in an incident that German police described as “deliberate,” which left at least a couple of people dead and dozens injured.
The attack, which officials are treating as an act of terrorism, left approximately 20 injured and two people dead before the driver shot himself to death, The Daily Mail reported. At least six people were being treated for serious, life-threatening injuries.
Journalist Anna Noryskiewicz told CBS News that “we do not know if the shooter shouted anything. No witnesses have said something like that.”
The Washington Post reports that the man behind the attack is believed to be a 48-year-old German national who reportedly has a history of “psychological problems.”
This latest vehicle attack comes exactly one-year after four people were killed when a truck plowed into a crowd inside a Swedish shopping center.
