At Least 9 Dead, Dozens More Injured After Truck Plows into Berlin Christmas Market

A truck plowed into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin Monday night, killing at least nine people and injuring dozens of others in what witnesses described as a deliberate attack.

The large Scania truck with a Poland license plate crashed into the market outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. Television footage showed the truck with its windshield smashed out on the sidewalk alongside the market, with a swarm of ambulances nearby. A large Christmas tree with a gold star on top was toppled over nearby in the street, and tree branches were crushed under the truck’s tires.

Police said a suspect believed to be the driver was arrested nearby and a passenger was dead. Authorities estimated that 50 people were injured, but an exact number was not immediately available.

Police said they are still investigating whether the crash was an accident or an attack, but the incident had a chilling echo of the July 14 truck attack in Nice, France that killed 86 people.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the Nice attack, which was carried out by a Tunisian living in France. ISIS and Al Qaeda have both called on followers to use trucks in particular to attack public places.

Die Welt newspaper reported that a Polish TV station had interviewed a man named Ariel Zurawski, who said that his cousin was assigned to drive the truck involved in the incident. Zurawski claimed he had last spoken to his cousin at noon Monday and said he suspected the truck had been hijacked. He added that the truck had been loaded with steel structures weighing 25 tons.

150416-rachel-lehnardt

A Georgia mom who police say hosted a party for teenagers that included alcohol, drugs, sex and “naked Twister” has beenshocked-mom
sentenced to probation, reports CBS affiliate WRDW.

Rachel Lehnardt, 35, allegedly confessed to her Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor that she lost custody of five children after the April 2015 party at her Evans home. Police say she allowed her 16-year-old daughter and the teen’s friends to drink alcohol and smoke marijuana.

A police report alleged Lehnardt participated in a game of “naked Twister” before having sex with an 18-year-old boy in a bathroom, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported at the time. Police said Lenhardt admitted to lewd acts in front of the group. They also allege Lenhardt said she fell asleep and woke up to find her daughters’ boyfriend, 16, having sex with her, the paper reported.

[VIDEO] The Moment Pro-Migrant Rioters Overrun Police At London Train Station

LONDON, United Kingdom – Raheem Kassam reports: A throng of nearly 200 pro-migrant rioters descended on London’s St. Pancras mainline station tonight – the terminal that connects the UK’s capital city with Europe – to demand “no borders” and “no nations”. The scenes, brought to you exclusively by Breitbart London, shows violent clashes between police and protesters, with London’s cops looking woefully unprepared.

“At around 6pm a number of protesters arrived at St Pancras rail station and officers are currently facilitating a peaceful protest… Around this time a number of other individuals arrived at the station causing disorder, and missiles, including smoke bombs were thrown at police officers. This group were dispersed by police and officers remain at the station.”

Calais Migrant Solidarity, an umbrella group of hard-left protesters, descended on the station after attending an “Anarchist Book Fair” – seemingly undeterred by the hypocrisy of anarchist philosophy wanting less government intervention, while most of the protesters in attendance are familiar faces from left-wing marches demanding more government interference in the marketplace, and in civil society.

And what they experienced tonight was just that – government in action – as they came head to head with London’s police. But in this case, it seems they were successful, breaking through police lines, and hurling smoke bombs into one of the busiest railway stations in the country, endangering themselves, police, members of the public, and tourists with their demands to welcome unlimited numbers of “refugees” into Britain.

Police officers can be seen in the clip above forming a line outside the main entrance to the station, protecting members of the public and commuters from the group of masked and hooded individuals.

But the thin blue line soon broke, as smoke bombs were kicked towards the hapless police, and the horde rushed through the entrance.

Once inside, protesters were wrestled to the ground and turfed out, while others continued screaming in the faces of policemen and women, who are, as usual in Britain, unarmed. Read the rest of this entry »
