Armenian Diocese of Germany condemns Berlin car-ramming incident

PanARMENIAN.Net - The German Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church has condemned the incident in which a motorist, who has both German and Armenian citizenship, rammed his vehicle into a crowd of people in Berlin, killing one and leaving six in critical condition.

"We reject any act of this nature, regardless of the national-religious affiliation of the person who committed it," the Diocese said in a statement, according to the Orer Armenian European Magazine.

Berlin Interior Affairs Minister Iris Spranger has said the car-ramming was a deliberate act by a person who likely was suffering from mental illness.

As part of their investigation, police have already searched the driver’s home and also are investigating his sister, who is the owner of the car used in the attack, EFE reported.
