2 killed in apparent vehicle attack in Munster, Germany

Two people were killed and about 20 injured after a man drove a small truck into a group of people outside a restaurant in Munster, Germany, on Saturday.

The driver, who has been identified as a German citizen, shot himself after the crash near the city's historic center. Police have indicated they are not searching for additional suspects and are "assuming" the crash was an intentional attack, though they do not have confirmation on that point.

"We cannot speculate about the motive at this stage, but it is clear that the man who committed suicide drove a light truck into a larger group of people today," said a Munster police representative. "There are dead and wounded; please avoid the area."

In December of 2016, a man rammed an 18-wheeler into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people. London and Nice, France, also suffered vehicle attacks in 2016 and 2017. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for all three incidents. In this case, connection to ISIS or similar terrorist groups has been ruled out. The investigation is still underway Sunday.
