Munster van crash leaves several dead in Germany as vehicle ploughs into pedestrians, with cops saying driver has killed himself

A vehicle has rammed into a crowd of people in the western German city of Muenster. Several people have been killed in the incident, according to police.
Authorities have not provided any specific numbers, merely confirming the fatalities. Yet, according to the Rheinische Post, citing a police source, the number of those dead now stands at three. Around 30 people are estimated to be injured.
The incident took place in the center of Muenster. Police have cordoned off the area and asked people to avoid it. The nature of the incident remains “unclear,” police said in a Twitter post urging everyone to “avoid speculation.”
Alleged photos of the scene of the incident appear to show a grey minivan, seen among scattered chairs and tables in a narrow street.

The incident might have been a terrorist attack, the German Rheinische Post said, citing police sources. However, no official confirmation has been issued.
Police took to Twitter to call on people to remain calm, asking people to refrain from spreading unconfirmed rumors about the incident.

The perpetrator has committed suicide, the Rheinishe Post newspaper reported citing police. The newspaper also said that police are searching for two more attackers allegedly linked to the Muenster ramming. Other reports suggest that police aren't looking for other alleged attackers.
Fire brigades, rescue and police teams have rushed to the scene.
Images of the attack have appeared on Twitter.
This is not the first vehicle ramming incident in Germany in recent years. In 2016, a 24-year-old Tunisian national, Anis Amri, drove a truck into people at a Christmas market in Berlin; the attack left 12 people dead and almost 50 injured.
