2:01 am
on this tuesday, december 20th. from abc news, this is "worlds news now."iwith the skinny on this tuesday, december 20th. from abc news, this is "worlds news now."on this tuesd. from abc news, this is "worlds news now." >> we say good morning, everyone, on a busy tuesday morning. we start with the breaking news, the carnage in berlin after that deadly truck attack at a christmas market packed with shoppers. >> german police called it a presumed terrorist attack saying the truck deliberately barrelled into the crowd leaving 12 dead and dozens injured. a suspect believed to be the driver is in custody, and a passenger in the truck is among the dead. the white house condemned the terrorist attack and donald trump blames it on islamic extremists. later in the show, we have more on how the attack is impacting security here at home in the united states. but we turn now to the other top story, the assassination of russia's ambassador to turkey. he was shot and killed at a photography exhibition by an
2:02 am
off duty police officer. >> the gunman was then killed by other officers. the attack may have been aimed at derailing cooperation between syria, russia and turkey. their foreign ministers are meeting in moscow today, at least the russian and turkey officials as well as rarnan officials. we have more now from abc's terry moran in the russian capital. >> reporter: just over the shoulder, the assassin waits, moments later, opening fire. then brandishing the weapon, the victim dying on the floor, he shouts defiance the jihadi battle cry. and an oath of revenge for the carnage in syria. don't forget aleppo. don't forget syria, he shouts. until these places are safe, you will not taste safety, either. people huddled in the corner, crying, terrified. a child lifted up off the floor. the gunman stalks the room shouting, identified by turkish authorities as a 22-year-old police officer who used his police id to enter the building.
2:03 am
outside, the ambassador's wife in tears. he is rushed to the hospital where he died. 62-year-old andre karlov, a veteran diplomate known well to vladimir putin who seemed shaken as he spoke. there can only be one answer to this, strengthening the fight against terrorism, adding ominously, the killers will feel it. aleppo, a city in ruins after a merciless assault, thousands dead, thousands more driven out, appalling slaughter now apparently claiming another victim. >> and joining us now live from russia is abc's terry moran. terry, good morning to you. >> good morning, kendis. >> terry, what are we hearing right now from russian officials? >> caller: well, this is a country in shock. there's not been anything like this, a russian ambassador killed in the line of duty in decades here, and this is really blow back for russia, that they
2:04 am
have had an adventure of sorts, have had an adventure of sorts, have had an adventure of sorts, a commitment in syria to the war in syria that has gradually now become deeper and deeper and with this assassination now a shocking consequence of vladimir putin's decision to intervene in syria. one thing to remember about syria, a lot of people don't know it, it was really a kind of puppet show in many ways with so many powers from around the world getting involved including russia. as i said, it was blow back. >> the attacker was ranting about aleppo, about syria, thousands are still trying to escape that city. what might the terrorists have to gain from this assassination on that front? >> caller: well, revenge, i think, is one thing that comes to mind right away. the fall of aleppo the past couple weeks has been an appalling slaughter, led in many ways by the russian air force and russian forces assisting the
2:05 am
syria government of president assad's forces on the ground, and it has been horrifying to watch. the suffering tremendous. this is revenge for that. it's also an attempt to bust up any peace talks russia and turkey will have a very difficult relationship because turkey was a puppet master on one side of the civil war and russia a puppet master on the other side. they were just about to sit down and start brokering, perhaps, a real peace deal. the security counsel of the u.n. passed a resolution. it was an attempt to break up a chance for peace. >> terry, world wars have started as a result of incidents like this. what are the implications going forward? >> well, on that issue, yeah, the world war i was started by an assassination, but russia has made clear they don't blame turkey for this, at least the russian government. the russian people may feel differently.
2:06 am
the russian government said, we have to push on with ending this war. and i think the major implication is that it will hopefully put the fear of god a little bit in the powers, including the united states, including turkey, including russia, including saudi arabia and qatar, so many countries that got involved in the syrian civil war that this kind of terrorism and the kind frankly that we see in europe, as well, the spillover from syria has become a global problem. >> all right. that's abc's terry moran live in moscow this morning. terry, thank you. we're going to turn back now to the latest on that truck massacre that took place in berlin. police are now questioning the suspected driver who was picked up less than two miles away from that scene. >> investigators are not saying how the passenger died, but he's been identified as a polish national. the truck was registered in poland and believed to be stolen
2:07 am
from a work site there. the truck apparently accelerated before plowing into that popular market. >> just having fun with my friends, and the markets were starting to close, and first we heard glass breaking. we didn't know what was happening, but a lot of people were running away, and a lot of people were crying, shouting, talking on the phone. we knew something was wrong, but we started seeing people with blood on their faces, and there were people fainting and sitting on the floor, and, yeah, we knew something was wrong. we tried to ask people, but nobody knew. >> all just happened so quickly. other witnesses say the truck narrowly missed them smashing through tables and knocked over christmas trees. they jumped in to help the injured until the paramedics arrived there. >> authorities immediately stepped up security here at home in the wake of that attack. >> now, we should point out, police were already on guard at holiday markets in new york city after a recent warning from federal authorities. abc's pierre thomas with more.

3:04 am
markets could be terrorist targets. over the weekend, police disrupted two attempts to plant bombs in other markets in german cities, in one case, involving a 12-year-old boy. this attack has the hallmark of isis terrorism. at this point, authorities around the world are stepping up security at christmas markets everywhere including this one in new york. brian ross, abc news, new york. the state department recently warned public places across europe may be targeted around the holiday season. >> but there were no barriers around the christmas market in berlin. that's a live look at what's happening there. now you can still see the truck involved in the attack parked there as officials continue to investigate and work on removing that. but some are now calling for better protection at public sites like this. an abc news security consultant and counter terrorism specialist steve gomez joins us live on the phone now with more. steve, what sticks out to you about this attack based on what we know so far? >> caller: well, the most
3:05 am
important thing is that this is now the third time that an attack like this has occurred involving a vehicle. and that comes shortly after isis put out propaganda and instructions to their sympathizers to use a vehicle and mow down people in a crowd, so they gave that type of instruction, and now we've had the nice attack, we had the attack at ohio state university, and now we have the one here in berlin, and so it just shows that isis is successful in messaging to their sympathizers that are here in the u.s., europe, and wherever, and they are going out committing attacks, and this attack is a very easy attack. all you need is a vehicle. you're not buying a gun or something like that. you just need a car to do this. >> it's an easy attack, yes, steve, but things should have been done. as we take a look again at that live picture, you can see this was really, like, the size of a
3:06 am
tractor-trailer. this was berlin's version of times square. i know you can't get a tractor trailer to drive down times square, or for that matter, manhattan. seems like a glaring security lapse. >> caller: absolutely, especially in light of that type of intel, using a vehicle, it was a fairly decent sized truck, not as big as this one here in berlin, the one that was used in nice, but it was a truck. the security officials and the government in europe and here in the u.s., they have to recognize that this is a viable attack method that is being used by isis and their followers. so now you have to look at the security that you have to have in locations that you believe are going to have crowds, whether it's a special event, some typed of a concert or some type of a sporting event, whether it's something like new year's eve. they have to be thinking about new year's eve, where are they going to have a lot of people congregating, whether it's just in an area that's not near a
3:07 am
street or it's on the street like, say, in new york, you know, every year they have, u, right there in times square. they got to think, where are the crowds? they have to plan for that accordingly and not just with the wooden barriers. they have to be thinking along the lines of the portable type of barriers and so on that are viable. you can use those. they have to be thinking along those lines when planning for security. >> steve, it always feels like just when we -- is seems anyway, intelligence officials have a handle on one style attack, we see another, more simple than those we plan against. i just wonder, is there a way rather than constantly responding to a new style of attack, is there a way to approach this differently where we get ahead of the things? >> caller: well, you're exactly right, diane. the fact is, we are seeing, since 9/11, an evolution of how these attacks are occurring. you know, around 9/11, these types of attacks were usually involving terrorists that were going back to the middle east or
3:08 am
one of the countries out there where they got training and instruction on how to, you know, commit an attack or how to use an explosive device, then come into the u.s. or some other country and try to pull the attack off whether by themselves or other people in a conspiracy. then it eventually got in the homegrown radicalization, where they were now using -- you know, trying to put together a makeshift bomb in had their kitchen using bolts and, you know, different types of material. and then they go to the basic firearm, getting a firearm and going out and shooting everybody. then we see knives where people are hacking with hatchets and knives and trying to kill people that way. now we have vehicles. you're absolutely right. these methodologies that the terrorists use are constantly changing.
3:09 am

3:31 am
that's coming up in "the skinny" on this tuesday, december 20th. from abc news, this is "worlds news now." >> we say good morning, everyone, on a busy tuesday morning. we start with the breaking news, the carnage in berlin after that deadly truck attack at a christmas market packed with shoppers. >> german police called it a presumed terrorist attack saying the truck deliberately barrelled into the crowd leaving 12 dead and dozens injured. a suspect believed to be the driver is in custody, and a passenger in the truck is among the dead. the white house condemned the terrorist attack and donald trump blames it on islamic extremists. later in the show, we have more on how the attack is impacting security here at home in the united states. but we turn now to the other top story, the assassination of russia's ambassador to turkey. he was shot and killed at a photography exhibition by an off duty police officer.
3:32 am
>> the gunman was then killed by other officers. the attack may have been aimed at derailing cooperation between syria, russia and turkey. their foreign ministers are meeting in moscow today, at least the russian and turkey officials as well as rarnan officials. we have more now from abc's terry moran in the russian capital. >> reporter: just over the shoulder, the assassin waits, moments later, opening fire. then brandishing the weapon, the victim dying on the floor, he shouts defiance the jihadi battle cry. and an oath of revenge for the carnage in syria. don't forget aleppo. don't forget syria, he shouts. until these places are safe, you will not taste safety, either. people huddled in the corner, crying, terrified. a child lifted up off the floor. the gunman stalks the room shouting, identified by turkish authorities as a 22-year-old police officer who used his police id to enter the building. outside, the ambassador's wife in tears.
3:33 am
he is rushed to the hospital where he died. 62-year-old andre karlov, a veteran diplomate known well to vladimir putin who seemed shaken as he spoke. there can only be one answer to this, strengthening the fight against terrorism, adding ominously, the killers will feel it. aleppo, a city in ruins after a merciless assault, thousands dead, thousands more driven out, appalling slaughter now apparently claiming another victim. >> and joining us now live from russia is abc's terry moran. terry, good morning to you. >> good morning, kendis. >> terry, what are we hearing right now from russian officials? >> caller: well, this is a country in shock. there's not been anything like this, a russian ambassador killed in the line of duty in decades here, and this is really
3:34 am
blow back for russia, that they have had an adventure of sorts, a commitment in syria to the war in syria that has gradually now become deeper and deeper and with this assassination now a shocking consequence of vladimir putin's decision to intervene in syria. one thing to remember about syria, a lot of people don't know it, it was really a kind of puppet show in many ways with so many powers from around the world getting involved including russia. as i said, it was blow back. >> the attacker was ranting about aleppo, about syria, thousands are still trying to escape that city. what might the terrorists have to gain from this assassination on that front? >> well, revenge, i think, is one thing that comes to mind right away. the fall of aleppo the past couple weeks has been an appalling slaughter, led in many ways by the russian air force
3:35 am
and russian forces assisting the syria government of president assad's forces on the ground, and it has been horrifying to watch. the suffering tremendous. this is revenge for that. it's also an attempt to bust up any peace talks russia and turkey will have a very difficult relationship because turkey was a puppet master on one side of the civil war and russia a puppet master on the other side. they were just about to sit down and start brokering, perhaps, a real peace deal. the security counsel of the u.n. passed a resolution. it was an attempt to break up a chance for peace. >> terry, world wars have started as a result of incidents like this. what are the implications going forward? >> well, on that issue, yeah, the world war i was started by an assassination, but russia has made clear they don't blame turkey for this, at least the russian government. the russian people may feel differently. the russian government said, we
3:36 am
have to push on with ending this war. and i think the major implication is that it will hopefully put the fear of god a little bit in the powers, including the united states, including turkey, including russia, including saudi arabia and qatar, so many countries that got involved in the syrian civil war that this kind of terrorism and the kind frankly that we see in europe, as well, the spillover from syria has become a global problem. >> all right. that's abc's terry moran live in moscow this morning. terry, thank you. we're going to turn back now to the latest on that truck massacre that took place in berlin. police are now questioning the suspected driver who was picked up less than two miles away from that scene. >> investigators are not saying how the passenger died, but he's been identified as a polish national. the truck was registered in poland and believed to be stolen from a work site there.
3:37 am
the truck apparently accelerated before plowing into that popular market. >> just having fun with my friends, and the markets were starting to close, and first we heard glass breaking. we didn't know what was happening, but a lot of people were running away, and a lot of people were crying, shouting, talking on the phone. we knew something was wrong, but we started seeing people with blood on their faces, and there were people fainting and sitting on the floor, and, yeah, we knew something was wrong. we tried to ask people, but nobody knew. >> all just happened so quickly. other witnesses say the truck narrowly missed them smashing through tables and knocked over christmas trees. they jumped in to help the injured until the paramedics arrived there. >> authorities immediately stepped up security here at home in the wake of that attack. >> now, we should point out, police were already on guard at holiday markets in new york city after a recent warning from federal authorities. abc's pierre thomas with more. >> reporter: those heavily armed police officers on guard at

electoral college has officially voted. despite protests in many state capitals where the electors were meeting, trump obtained more than the necessary 270 votes. even in california where all 55 electors voted for hillary clinton, hundreds of people turn out to voice displeasure with the election results. but by that point, texas had already put trump over the top. he finished with 304 votes to clinton's 227. and the president-elect tapped billionaire vincent violet as the next secretary of the army. he built the largest high speed trading firms, owns the panthers nhl hockey team, son of a brooklyn truckdriver and worth $1.8 billion, making him one of the 400 wealthiest americans. >> like every other brooklyn truck driver. we could learn new information today about the fbi's investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. a federal judge ordered that a search warrant and other
