Fatalities Reported After Vehicle Drives Into Pedestrians In Germany

Германия отказала Испании в экстрадиции Пучдемона по делу о восстании

Police spokesman Andreas Bode said it was too early to declare the incident an attack.

A German news agency has quoted police as saying the driver of that auto in Muenster has killed himself.

German officials said that at least four people were killed and 20 others were injured, including six people who were taken to hospital in critical condition.

Muenster is five hours west of Berlin near the border of Germany and Netherlands.

The suspected driver had shot himself, Bode said. They're also investigating a suspicious object found inside the vehicle and are working to determine whether or not it is unsafe. It was a warm sunny afternoon, one of the first nice days of spring, and many people were out in the area with its narrow streets, Bild editor Julian Reichelt told CNN.

All three of the attackers were killed by the police who arrived at the scene several minutes later.

A deputy spokeswoman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Ulrike Demmer, tweeted "our thoughts are with the victims and their families".

Weekend snow? April flakes are rare, but possible
This unsettled weather pattern, with chances of precipitation and below average temperatures will continue through the weekend. As colder air surges in behind the system early Saturday morning, temperatures will again fall into the 20s.

Images on social media showed smashed and upturned tables and chairs strewn across the pavement outside an eaterie in the centre of the picturesque medieval city.

Police work near the scene where French soliders were hit and injured by a vehicle in the western Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret, France, August 9, 2017.

Munster Mayor Markus Lewe says the reason for the crash is still unclear. The outrage occurred near a well-known restaurant, Kiepenkerl, frequented by locals and tourists and named after famous statue located in historic center of city.

Large parts of the city center were sealed off after the attack, and police asked people to stay away from the area. The city is also known as the "cycling capital of Germany", a nickname residents provided themselves, and is home to several universities.

She described the incident Saturday "terrible news".

He said, "People are calm, but really shocked", adding that people were scared and disbelieving that such an attack could happen in Muenster. In December 2016, a Tunisian man whose asylum request had been rejected crashed a truck through a crowded Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 and injuring 56.
