At least one person was killed and a dozen others injured when a car drove into a group of people at a busy shopping district in central Berlin, according to police.
The driver was briefly detained by passers-by before being handed to police after the car smashed through a shop front on Wednesday, according to a police spokesman Thilo Cablitz.
It was not clear whether the crash was intentional, police said.
“It is too early to speculate about the background (of the incident),” an interior ministry spokesperson told a regular federal government news conference in Berlin.
