BREAKING: Three Dead in Van Attack in Germany (PICS and VIDEO)

Paris terror attack

Three people are dead and at least 50 are injured in Muenster, Germany after an unknown suspect drove a van into a crowd on a city sidewalk. Six are in critical condition.

German police are treating the incident as a terror attack. Today is the one year anniversary of a car attack in Stockholm, Sweden, in which a terrorist killed five.

The suspect killed himself after the attack, raising more suspicion that this was a deliberate act. He reportedly shot himself.

Police are currently investigating a suspicious package found in the suspect’s vehicle.

It appears the van may have driven through an outdoor cafe area.

Reuters filed this earlier report on the attack.

“There are several dead, probably including the suspect,” a police spokeswoman said.

A security source added: “The scenario is such that an attack cannot be ruled out.”

Mass-selling daily Bild reported in its online edition that three people had died in the incident. It showed pictures of where police had cordoned off an area of the city.

The incident evoked memories of a December 2016 truck attack in Berlin that killed 12 people.

Anis Amri, a failed Tunisian asylum seeker with Islamist links, hijacked a truck on Dec. 19, 2016, killed the driver and then ploughed it into a crowded marketplace, killing 11 more people and injuring dozens of others.

Here is video and pictures from the scene, from various media sources.
