Two people have been killed in the western German city of Muenster after a van drove into people sitting outside restaurants. The suspect' s motive and exact identity still remains unclear, but German media reported he was a national with mental health problems.

Malu Dreyer, the regional premier of Rhineland-Palatinate state where Trier is located and regional interior minister Roger Lewentz are due to give a press conference later.

Footage from the scene broadcast on NTV showed several police vans and other emergency vehicles parked on a wide shopping street in Trier, a large section of which has been cleared.

Shoppers were seen huddling outside shops festooned with Christmas decorations with sirens blaring in the distance.

Debris from stalls and outdoor displays left a trail of destruction along the cobbled street.

Picturesque Trier, near the border with Luxembourg, traces its history back to the Roman Empire and is often called Germany's oldest city.

Although Germany is grappling with a second coronavirus wave that has forced restaurants, bars, sports and cultural centres to close, retailers have been allowed to stay open and many people were out doing their Christmas shopping.

"It's lucky that the Christmas market has been cancelled because of corona, or it could have been much worse," witness Frederic Fries told Welt TV.

While the incident has not been confirmed to be an attack, it brought back memories of the 2016 truck rampage at a Berlin Christmas market that left 12 people dead.

The driver, Anis Amri, was a failed Tunisian asylum seeker and a supporter of the Islamic State jihadist group.

In February, a German driver deliberately rammed into a crowd of revellers at a carnival parade in the central town of Volkmarsen, injuring dozens. Investigators ruled out a political motive and the suspect was detained on suspicion of attempted murder.

In January 2019, a German man injured eight people when he drove into groups of foreigners on New Year's Eve in the western cities of Bottrop and Essen, in what police called an anti-migrant attack.

The Latest: Nobel laureate warns of increased trafficking .
UNITED NATIONS — Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad says the COVID-19 pandemic has increased trafficking of women and gender-based violence, leaving the health and safety of women “on the line.” The 27-year-old activist, who was forced into sexual slavery by Islamic State fighters in Iraq, said curfews, lockdowns and travel restrictions imposed by governments to slow the spread of the virus “have had unintended consequences on women worldwide.”“Rather than reducing human trafficking and gender-based violence, the pandemic has increased the risk of exploitation and brutality against those most vulnerable,” she said.
