A 'terror attack' is feared in Berlin after a lorry reportedly ploughed through a Christmas market.
Terrified market-goers have tweeted panicked images from the scene of the incident which comes an hour after the Russian ambassador was shot dead in Ankara.
At least one man has been confirmed dead according to local media, with several more injured.
Video from the scene shows a huge articulated lorry smashed into the middle of the market on Berlin's Breitscheidplatz.
Germany's Christmas markets have been feared as a key target for jihadis following a series of other Islamist terror attacks in Germany and elsewhere in Europe this year.
