BERLIN (AP) – Police in the western German city of Muenster say a vehicle has crashed into a crowd there, killing several people and injuring others.

Police tweeted Saturday afternoon that residents should “avoid the area near the Kiepenkerl pub” where a large-scale police operation is underway. Kiepenkerl is a popular bar in the city’s historic downtown area.
