Germany: Berlin Xmas market reps. speak one year after truck tragedy

A press conference was held at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, on Wednesday, in Berlin, almost a year after a man drove a truck into the Christmas Market in front of the church. During the press conference, Klaus-Juergen Meier, who works with the representation for Christmas Markets in the city, spoke about German Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit, the day before, to the market. «We put out... Еще three or four stations at the Christmas market, and she had very personal questions for the exhibitors and traders, which I thought was very pleasant,» Meier said. A Senate representative, Roland Weber, spoke of recent criticisms expressed in a letter by families of those killed in the attack. «It was shown very early that we were all not prepared for an attack of this magnitude. In particular, I can well understand the criticism that some of those affected, and injured, have expressed,» said Weber. On 19 December 2016, twelve people were killed and scores more were injured when Anis Amri drove a hijacked truck into the Christmas market outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. The suspect was then fatally shot in Milan, a few days later.
