“There are said to have been placards inside but there was no letter of confession,” said the city’s state interior minister, Iris Spranger, refuting an earlier media report from Bild daily.

The incident took place near the scene of a fatal attack on December 19, 2016, when Anis Amri, a failed Tunisian asylum seeker with Islamist links, hijacked a truck, killed the driver and then plowed it into a crowded western Berlin Christmas market, killing 11 more people and injuring dozens of others.
