"Berlin's police force said for the first time early Tuesday morning that the truck that rammed into pedestrians at a popular Christmas market was set deliberately on its deadly course, confirming that investigators were looking at it as a suspected 'terrorist attack.' At least 12 people were killed and nearly 50 injured when the truck struck the popular Christmas market outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church late Monday as tourists and locals were enjoying a traditional pre-Christmas evening near Berlin's Zoo station. ... Multiple German media outlets reported a police raid early Tuesday morning at a former airport facility near Berlin, which is currently being used to house migrants and refugees. German daily Die Welt reported armed police had raided the hangar at the disused military Tempelhof Airport, which sits just south of central Berlin, reportedly only a 10 or 15 minute drive from the Christmas market hit by the apparent truck attack on Monday."
