  • A car drove into a group of people in the western German city of Muenster

At least two people died on Saturday when a vehicle rammed into a crowd of people dining outdoors at a restaurant in the western German city of Muenster, before the driver then shot himself. Authorities are treating the incident as a deliberate attack, CNN reported, citing a police spokesperson.

Police earlier said there were three deaths.

In the Berlin Christmas market attack, Tunisian asylum-seeker Anis Amri hijacked a truck and murdered its Polish driver before killing another 11 people and wounding dozens more by ploughing the heavy vehicle through the festive market in central Berlin. It was a warm sunny afternoon, one of the first nice days of spring, and many people were out in the area with its narrow streets, Bild editor Julian Reichelt told CNN.

A van is reported to have driven into pedestrians in the city of Muenster, in Germany. According to reports, the driver of the auto has killed himself. The police are registering ir homes for explosives, according to same source.

Mr Bode said six of the 20 injured were in a severe condition.

Photos from the scene show a van resting amid wrecked tables and chairs of an outdoor cafe. Multiple earlier reports had said the man was mentally ill.

Around 30 people are estimated to be injured.

A police spokeswoman said: "The danger is over". They confirmed that there was not a bomb squad on the scene.

"Please avoid the area around the Kiepenheuer".

Police said a suspicious object was found in the van and they're still examining it to see if it is unsafe. They did not say what it was, but said it was the reason for the large cordon around the crime scene. It's understood the driver took his own life.

"Terrible news from Muenster", German government spokeswoman Ulrike Demmer said in a tweet, saying local police were providing regular updates.

The attack is the latest in a string across Europe in which vehicles have been used to attack crowds of people in public places.

The incident came one year to the day after a truck attack in Stockholm that killed five people, and also evoked memories of a December 2016 truck attack in Berlin that killed 12 people. He was later killed in a shoot-out with police in Italy.
