Man causes motorway accidents in Berlin in ‘extremist’ act: Prosecutors

A man has caused a series of motorway accidents in Berlin, injuring six people including three seriously, in what German prosecutors Wednesday described as an extremist act.

The man appears to have had an “Islamist motivation according to our current knowledge”, prosecutors told AFP.

Local media reported that the man was a 30-year-old Iraqi who had shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) when getting out of his car Tuesday night.
