Motorway Crashes In Berlin Being Investigated As “Islamist Attack”
A 30-year-old has been arrested for allegedly causing series of motorway incidents.
Authorities in Germany have said that the series of motorway crashes in Berlin that took place on Tuesday evening are being investigated as a “suspected Islamist act.” The incident took place on the A100 autobahn in the German capital and a total of six people have reportedly been injured in it, two among them are serious. A 30-year-old man who has been arrested for causing the crashes has given his statement, which suggests “a religious Islamist motivation,” according to the prosecutor’s office.
German media has identified the suspect as Samrad A, who lives in a refugee accommodation. Prior to the attack, he had apparently posted pictures of his car on Facebook, along with religious phrases. Authorities have also said that the main targets of the suspect were motorcyclists. Witnesses said that during his arrest, the suspect had claimed to have a “dangerous object” in a box of ammunition.
