Germany: Muslim terrorist rams stolen truck into cars injuring 16 people
A Muslim terrorist rammed a stolen truck into several cars in the center of the German city of Limburg, injuring 16 people. Several people were being treated in hospital, one of them in a critical condition.
The driver-terrorist, who was also injured, has been arrested.
“Based on what we have learned and several witness accounts, the man seized control of the truck at about 5:20 pm,” police said in a statement.
According to police, the articulated truck slammed into eight cars that were waiting at a traffic light near the main railway station of Limburg in Hesse state, “crushing them together”.
Police said it was too soon to speculate about the motive of the terror attack.
“We currently do not have sufficient information about what was behind it,” they said.
“The investigation, including questioning witnesses and collecting evidence, is ongoing.”
