  • German news agency dpa says several people were killed after a car crashes into the crowd in city of Muenster

And the third, that took place in Berlin in 2016, when Anis Amri, a Tunisian man, rammed a truck into a crowded market, killing 12 people and wounding 70 - according to senior public prosecutor Martin Botzenhardt, who issued a joint statement with Muenster police, however, "So far there are no indications of a possible background for the crime".

A 51-year-old woman from the Lueneburg area in northern Germany and a 65-year-old man from the Borken area near Muenster were killed and the perpetrator shot himself after crashing the silver-grey coloured van into the outside area of the restaurant, police said.

German police have detained four men, one of whom they suspect of planning knife attacks at today's Berlin half-marathon, the newspaper Die Welt reported in its online edition.

Der Spiegel reported that police were investigating a similar incident that occurred in the eastern German city of Cottbus on Friday evening, when a man drove his vehicle into a group of people, injuring two, before fleeing.

Rather, "the motive and origins [of the crime] lie within the perpetrator himself", he added.

None of the pub's staff were injured in the incident, they said.

Officers have been searching the man's four apartments - two in Munster and two in Saxony - as well as several cars.

"Everything conceivable is being done to investigate the crime and to support the victims and their relatives", Merkel said in a statement.

Police said some of the 20 injured persons were still in life-threatening condition, but did not release further details on their identities.

Police guard in downtown Muenster, Germany, Saturday, April 7, 2018.

Armin Laschet, the governor of North Rhine-Westphalia state, where Muenster is located, visited the crash scene on Sunday.

Police say they're still examining what kind of an object it is and whether it's unsafe.

Muenster is a popular tourist destination with 300,000 inhabitants, known for its medieval old town, which was rebuilt after the massive destruction during World War II.

The city was buzzing on Saturday - one of the first warm spring days of the year - and people were sitting outside the famous Kiepenkerl pub when the van was driven into the bar's tables with such force that the vehicle only stopped when it hit the pub's wall.

"We have again experienced that. absolute security is unfortunately not possible", Seehofer said, adding that the government would do everything possible to protect citizens.

Grieshaber reported from Berlin.
