Prague, Dec 21 (CTK) – Representatives of embassies have been signing the book of condolences at the German Embassy in Prague since the morning to commemorate the victims of the Monday terrorist attack on a Christmas market in Berlin.

An unknown terrorist drove with a lorry into the crowd at the Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz square in Berlin on Monday, killing 12 people. Another 30 people suffered serious injuries.
