TRUMP on BERLIN Christmas Tree ATTACK:
‘Islamic terrorists continuously slaughter Christians’.
A large truck has stormed through a Christmas market in the German capital of Berlin killing nine people and injuring many others. One person has been arrested.
President-elect Donald Trump condemned the attack in a statement from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida: “Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today’s horrifying terror attack in Berlin. Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad. These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.”
Police in Berlin say the lorry stormed through the Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin-Charlottenburg killing one man and injuring several others. The lorry is said to have gone off the road and onto the market path which is purely for pedestrians. The truck then crashed after leaving the market. Police have yet to make a statement on any motives reports Berliner Zeitung but Sky News, quoting German media, said that “first indications from investigation suggest truck crash was an attack”.
