UN Security Council condemns ‘barbaric’ Berlin attack

The UN Security Council is condemning “the barbaric and cowardly terrorist attack” at a Christmas market in Berlin and calling for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.

Council members say “that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.”

A truck drove into the popular market, killing 12 people and injuring nearly 50 others.

The council “expressed their deep sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the government of Germany.”
