Market Truck Attack
On 19 December 2016, a truck was deliberately driven into the Christmas market next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin, leaving 12 people dead and 56 others injured. One of the victims was the truck's original driver, Łukasz Urban, who was found shot dead in the passenger seat. The truck was eventually stopped by its automatic brakes. The perpetrator was Anis Amri, a Tunisian failed asylum seeker. Four days after the attack, he was killed in a shootout with police near Milan in Italy. An initial suspect was arrested and later released due to lack of evidence. The event was designated as a terrorist attack.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant gave Anis Amri instructions. ISIL released a video of Amri pledging allegiance to the terror group's leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Notes on the video of G. Wisnewski
Rescue activities: Journalist Gerhard Wisnewski screens video material and recognizes many ambulances, but no rescue activities, no wears and no casualties. Even a video that is recorded two minutes after the alleged attack with a mobile phone, shows noone lying on the ground in Budengasse injured or dead.
Distance bollard : Directly behind the truck, behind the loading hatch of the trailer, the bollard can be seen. One wonders how the truck got out of Budengasse back onto the road without driving over this bollard.
Light strings: The lights hanging over the Budengasse hung on 3.30 m and would therefore have had to be torn down by the 4.00 m high truck.
A windscreen camera shows the truck racing at about 60 km / h over the intersection. The entrance area of the Christmas market is very narrow and although the chicane would have mastered Michael Schumacher with a racing kart, with a truck this would be completely impossible with this high speed, without toppling over and disassembling the booth standing on the left or the blue mounted on the lamppost on the right Demolishing signs. Only a lorry driver with experience in walking pace could travel this route without disassembling everything in the entrance area. Firstly, it would be unlikely that a terrorist attacker drove so prudently and slowly, so that nothing breaks in the entrance area and secondly, the automatic emergency braking system of the truck to have been triggered, but is not activated at walking pace.
