Germany still clueless about motive for fatal van attack in Münster

Prosecutors said they still do not know the motive behind a 48-year-old German man driving his van into a crowd of people in the western German city of Münster on Saturday.
Two people were killed and 20 injured before the man fatally shot himself inside the van. Some of those injured in the deliberate crash remain in a critical condition, police sources said Sunday.

“As of now, we don’t have any leads regarding a possible background for the deed,” prosecutor Martin Botzenhardt wrote in a joint statement with police, adding that according to the latest information there was no indication of any accomplices being involved in the assault.

“The investigations are being led under high pressure in all possible directions.”
