A man who rammed several vehicles on a motorway in Berlin is being investigated for what prosecutors say was “an Islamist-motivated attack”.

Three people were seriously injured when the suspect’s car collided with vehicles on the A100 motorway shortly before 19:00 (17:00 GMT) on Tuesday evening.

According to witnesses, the 30-year-old Iraqi suspect claimed to have a “dangerous object” in a box.

Nothing was later found inside.

Prosecutors are investigating the attack as having either a political or religious motive but they have not ruled out psychological issues.
