( Daily Mail ) A refugee is thought to have been behind the wheel of a 25-tonne articulated lorry which mowed down and killed 12 people – and injured 48 others – as it sped at 40mph through a busy Christmas market in Berlin.

As German police, the White House and the German Interior Minister indicated the incident was terror related, ISIS moved quickly to claim responsibility for the fatal attack.

The vehicle laden with steel cargo mounted the pavement before tearing through stalls and shoppers in the market on Breitscheidplatz Square, outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in the German capital’s main shopping area.

The man at the wheel – who according to German newspaper Die Welt was of Afghan or Pakistani heritage and had arrived in Germany in February – fled the scene before being arrested at a nearby zoo.

The truck owner said he lost contact with his cousin, the registered driver who was transporting steel beams from Poland to Germany. 

Local reports suggest the original driver had been hijacked and was found dead in the lorry’s cabin
