Truck Attack In Germany

Someone drove truck into the Christmas Market in Berlin. No one is reporting the nationality of the suspect or the motive, but they are reporting an arrest.

From the English version of Deutsche Welle.

"The incident occurred on the Breitscheidplatz square, near the location of Berlin's iconic Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church along the Kurfürstendamm shopping mile. Nine people are reported to have died as a result of the attack; however, unconfirmed reports state that there may be more fatalities. Up to 50 people have been reported as injured.
The police are treating the incident as an apparent terror attack. The driver of the truck has now been arrested after fleeing the scene earlier."

I'm guessing "Work Place Violence" -- from one of Beer Maids.

He used a high capacity assault truck. No one needs a truck that large. Why doesn't Germany have National truck registration and driver registration and fuel user registration?

If only it had been an electric truck instead of one powered by an internal combustion engine, the damage wouldn't have been anywhere near so great. After all, such a vehicle would have neither the range nor the speed of the vehicle used...
