Police walk before the truck that had sped into a Christmas market in Berlin, on December 19, 2016, killing at least nine people and injuring dozens more. Ambulances and heavily armed officers rushed to the area after the driver drove up the pavement of the market in a square popular with tourists, in scenes reminiscent of the deadly truck attack in the French city of Nice last July. / AFP PHOTO / John MACDOUGALL
