Germany’s Angela Merkel to meet relatives of Berlin terror victims after ‘critical letter’

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet with the families of the 12 people killed in a terrorist attack that targeted a Christmas market in Berlin last year, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.

The announcement comes after the relatives of those killed wrote a letter published in the Hamburg-based Der Spiegel news magazine that accused her of “political inaction” and failing to reach out in the aftermath.
