Berlin car-ramming driver to be taken into psychiatric care

Prosecutors will seek to have the German-Armenian man accused of plowing a car through a crowd in central Berlin placed in psychiatric care after he showed signs of mental illness, a spokesman for the prosecution says.

The 29-year-old appears to be suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, spokesman Sebastian Buechner says. A schoolteacher was killed and 32 other people were injured in yesterday’s incident.
