LIVE UPDATES: Berlin Christmas market attack

A driver unwittingly captured the moment the terror act occurred in Berlin. As the car approaches a set of lights, a dark truck can be seen racing towards the market. 

Moments later, people can be seen running from the scene. 

The video, obtained by German newspaper Bild, was taken by a driver who had been near the market. 

"Just a few seconds after the truck had driven to the Christmas market, the first people were already screaming at me," he told Bild.

"I immediately turned around when I saw the truck [standing] there. I realized that something terrible [had] happened.”
