Two people dead after vehicle attack in Münster, Germany

Yet another vehicle used in deadly attack.

Two people have been killed and at least 20 injured, six seriously, after a van crashed into a crowd of pedestrians in the western German university city of Münster. The vehicle, a grey VW van, was driven into a restaurant terrace area just before 3.30pm on Saturday. Eyewitnesses said that it was driven at speed as tourists and students basked in the sunshine.

The attack carries unhappy similarities to the Berlin Christmas market attack in December 2016 that killed 12 and injured 56 and further attacks using vehicles as weapons over the course of the last year.
