The man who caused a number of accidents on the highway in Berlin on Tuesday has acted in a “bizarre, religious delusion”. That is what the German Public Prosecution Service says after a first psychiatric investigation.
On the A100, the ring road around the German capital, the 30-year-old Iraqi rammed a number of vehicles in three places. According to the police, he mainly hunted motorcyclists. Six people were injured, three of them seriously.
The OM soon spoke of a Muslim extremist motive, but also reported that the man had psychological problems. He has been admitted to the psychiatric ward of the prison hospital.
According to the OM, he has not yet said anything about the attack. The Iraqi is charged with attempted murder. If he is indeed mentally ill, there is a chance that he will be declared insane.
