A catastrophe occurred at Breitscheidplatz
That incident comes to mind Breitscheidplatz attack on December 19, 2016. Islamist Anis Amri († 24) ran to the Christmas market in a semi-trailer. 13 people were killed. More than a hundred spectators were injured, some seriously injured.
The killer authorities know what a disaster it is in particular. Tunisian Anis Amri arrived in Germany in 2015 with a wave of refugees via Italy and Switzerland. He fooled the state, reported under different identities, and applied for social benefits under many names. Security officials kept him in mind as a threat, but thought he was unlikely to get weapons. No one thought the hijacked truck was an assault weapon. (Man / STA)
