A Range Rover sped through a busy #German pedestrian area in the city of #Trier, #killing two and injuring many others, authorities say a 51-year-old man from the area was arrested and it's unclear if this was #terrorism-related. This is a developing story.
A car drove at high speed into a pedestrian zone in the southwestern German city of Trier on Tuesday, killing at least four people including a young child and seriously injuring up to 15 others before the driver was stopped by police, officials said.
The UN says at least 110 civilians have been killed and many injured in attacks on two villages in northeast Nigeria.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack. but the armed group Boko Haram has carried out a series of deadly assaults in the area in recent years.
Security forces are looking for dozens more villagers who are missing, many of them women.
It is the worst attack on civilians in Borno state this year.
President Muhammadu Buhari claimed five years ago that Boko Haram had been defeated.
