The immigration critical party AfD does not mince words after the attack in which a truck drove straight into the crowd at the Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin.
This is "Merkel's death," predicts Marcus Pretzell, representing AfD in the European Parliament. His partner, party leader Frauke Petry, who herself is strongly opposed to Merkel's "open door policy" for asylum seekers, believes that Merkel has put Germany at risk.
- Germany is no longer safe, says Petry.
- An environment where such acts can flourish, has been recklessly and systematically imported over the past eighteen months, she says.
Twelve people were killed in the attack. At least 48 others were sent to hospital, many with critical injuries.
The truck plowed through the crowd as the jihadist drove it almost 80 meters into the market before it stopped. Police are working out of a theory that the truck was hijacked. A Polish truck driver was found killed inside the car - apparently as the perpetrator's first victim.
A similar attack occurred in Nice, France in the summer, where 86 people were killed and over 400 wounded.
