BERLIN — At least two persons have been killed and numerous other people injured in the city of Trier in southwestern Germany on Tuesday, when a automobile sped down a pedestrian street in the city center, the police mentioned.
The driver has been arrested and the motor vehicle confiscated, the police mentioned, but they gave no even more facts.

Christmas markets in Germany have been canceled or pared down to only a couple of stalls this 12 months, as component of efforts to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, but retailers are even now open.
