At Least Nine Dead as Truck Plows Through Berlin Christmas Market (VIDEO)

Well, it's not like I was expecting a slow news day, or anything.

There's video at Fox News, "Police: At least 9 dead after truck slams into Berlin market," and MSNBC, "Truck Runs Into Berlin Crowd, Many Killed."

Also, at USA Today, "At least 9 dead after truck slams into Berlin market."

At the Wall Street Journal, "Truck Rams Berlin Christmas Market, Killing Nine and Injuring at Least 50":
BERLIN—A truck drove onto the sidewalk at a Christmas market in the German capital on Monday, killing nine people and injuring at least 50, police said.

A semi-trailer drove onto the sidewalk near Breitscheidplatz in Charlottenburg, a tony district in West Berlin, at about 8 p.m., a spokeswoman for the Berlin police said. After hitting the people, the truck swerved back into the street where it came to a stop, the spokeswoman said.

The circumstances of the incident weren’t immediately clear, but a security official said authorities believe it was a deliberate act. One person, suspected to be the truck driver, has been arrested, a police spokesman said on German television. A passenger in the truck died in the incident, he said.

The crash took place at the site of the Christmas market in front of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, a popular site for tourists...
