7:04 am
pakistan nearly a year ago. charlie d'agata is in berlin where all of the christmas markets are closed because of the attack. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, police have confirmed that that suspect was known to authorities as a minor offender. he had registered at a refugee center. a local politician said, look, we are in a state of war, whether people want to admit it or not. the smashed windshield and battered front end bore the evidence of the truck's path of destruction. so did what was underneath. the trapped bodies of victims, as emergency crews scrambled to ave as many lives as they could. the truck jumped the curb and plowed straight into the crowd, american eyewitness sadana durante told us. just went into the market, took down a few stalls and rolled into the market. it happened really fast.
7:05 am
>> reporter: this morning, forensics teams separated the cab of the truck and removed for investigation. the christmas market is outside of kaiser wilhelm memorial church. witnesses say it jumped on to the pedestrianized walkway, and drove through the area packed with tourists and shopper where is the stalls were set up. many were flattened. the christmas decorations torn down by the truck. the suspected driver was arrested less than two miles away near the berlin zoo. among the dead was the passenger of the truck, a polish citizen, the police were quick to confirm, he was not in control of the truck at the time of the incident. the truck had polish license plates and was republic sistered to a polish transportation company. it was hauling 25 tons of steel. u.s. intelligence officials tell cbs news the horror that unfolded bore similarities to the terrorist attack in nice, france, in july. when a truck tour through a crowd and killed 86 people.
7:06 am
isis claimed responsibilities for that attack. and has since encouraged its supporters to launch similar attacks elsewhere. we've learned this morning that the polish driver in this attack had been shot and killed. we've also heard that one brave eyewitness actually followed the suspect as he fled. like a mile and a half, pointed him out to police and that's why he was captured so quickly. alex. >> charlie d'agata in germany, thanks. the attack in berlin caused a visible increase in security here in the united states. the new york city and chicago police departments were out in force last night. officers patrolled in and around holiday markets. just in the last month, the state department issued a travel alert. it warns americans of the heightened risk of terrorist attacks throughout europe. the alert specifically urged caution at holiday festivals, events and outdoor markets. >> john miller is nypd's deputy commissioner of intelligence and counters terrorism.
7:07 am
he's also our former senior correspondent. john, good morning. >> good morning. >> what did you think about the nature of this attack? and what does it mean for the security posture here at home? >> i think the nature of this attack is another suggestion that we're seeing that both al qaeda and isil have called on their supporters, their followers, to do attacks within their range. and they have given out, in their magazines, a series of examples using knives, if you can't get a gun. using a truck. using a car, as we saw at ohio state, if you can't get a truck. but basically, what they're asking for is low-tech, low-cost, high-impact. i think we're seeing that again. >> this truck was stolen apparently from a polish truck driver who was killed by the suspect who was born in afghanistan of pakistani parents. when you look at information like this, and you transfer it essentially to the situation in new york where you've had a record number of tourists this year, how do you prevent against something like this, john? >> well, we've got a layered
7:08 am
approach. and the idea is if you have enough consecentric circles you should follow it. one of the things we did with al qaeda years ago was develop a relationship with the truck and rental truck industry. one of the second things we did after the nice attack was to go back out to 140 truck rental locations and say here's some indications of suspicious behavior. here's how to get us on the hotline. here's how to get me, the detective who has come to see you, on my phone and really raise awareness. >> to what degree is there intelligence services between american intelligences and european intelligence services? >> the intelligence services between european and american intelligence services is actually pretty good. the issues that they're challenged by is intelligence sharing between european services themselves. >> do we have any indication
7:09 am
that there has been an uptick in the security threat here at home during the holidays? >> no. we see the usual threat stream, which has just become a part of life, norah. but at this point, we don't see any specific credible threat either going towards the holiday season. or in new york in particular. but we've made a lot of adjustments based on these kinds of attacks and other things. >> you heard the berlin mayor was quoted as saying maybe we can't hold street festivals like this anymore. are we going to reach a point where we literally can't do certain things, john? >> you know, this is the most difficult question of my job. people say what do you worry about the most. spend very little time worrying and an awful lot of time planning. part of what happened yesterday is a by-product of that. we see an attack in germany. our european posts flash back to
7:10 am
their contacts and say, what was the target? how was it done? it was a truck, in a christmas market. we immediately go to the new york overlays, where are the christmas markets. we've got our lists. here, here, here. hercules teams, critical response teams. we try to put that layer as we learn more. it's about being flexible and agile. but he who protects everything protects nothing. you can only spread your resources so widely. and i've got to tell you, when you do the analysis piece, we can figure out what are the high-profile targets. but you also say one of the largest loss of life on u.s. soil in the post 9/11 world in the terrorism attack happened at a gay nightclub in orlando. not in the main thoroughfare. you know, on latino night. you start to see the randomness of the targeting. and that's one of the
7:11 am
challenges. and have to be flexible at best. >> john miller, thank you for being here. >> thanks. russian investigators arrived in turkey this morning after the assassination of moscow's ambassador in ankara. it was all captured on camera. the ambassador was shot at the opening of an art exhibit in the turkish capital. an associated press photographer took these photos of the man waving his hand gun and shouting. holly williams is in antakya, turkey, near the syrian border. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, russian sources say it was an attempt to disrupt their organization. but on the surface it looks like retribution for russia's bloody air campaign in syria. the russian ambassador was giving a speech in an art gallery, watched by the man who
7:12 am
would kill him minutes later. remember aleppo, remember syria, the assassin shouted after shooting andrei karlov in the back. murdering him, apparently in revenge for russia's deadly interception in the syria civil war. the gunman was a 22-year-old turkish police officer whose attack left others in the museum cowering. he was later killed in a shoot-out with security forces according to local media. russia and turkey are on opposite sides of the syrian war. recently, relations have improved. negotiating a cease fire last week. this comes just days after thousands in turkey protested against russian air strikes in syria. like many in the middle east, they're serious about russia's lethal support of the regime. it helped the regime draw back control of the city of aleppo.
7:13 am
but syrians have paid with their lives. and it's forced thousands of civilians to flee. >> is there literally nothing that can shame you? >> reporter: the u.s. has condemned it as barberous. and over 200 people fled aleppo province live until mud and desperation. but even al kamuna, a place of last resort was hit by an air strike in may. the suspected work of either russia or the regime it further fueled anger with moscow. shots were also fired outside of the u.s. embassy here in turkey last night. a gunman produced a shotgun and fired several shots into the air. but there were no casualties. he was later detained. and today, the embassy is closed. alex. >> holly williams in turkey, thank you. the suspect in a shooting at a mosque in zurich, switzerland,

7:16 am
state-by-state electoral votes certified mr. trump's victory. >> six votes for donald trump -- >> whoo! >> reporter: shouts erupted. in wisconsin, police carried a woman out. others took to the streets. >> do the right thing! >> reporter: but the ballots themselves were cast with little fanfare. mr. trump received 304 votes to hillary clinton's 227. one of which came from her husband former president bill clinton who was the first to cast his vote in new york. afterwards, he touted clinton's popular vote. >> she prevailed against it. and the russia and the fbi deal and couldn't prevail against that. >> mr. trump called it a landslide victory because the margin was, quote, far greater than ever anticipated by the media. trump is the first republican to win more than 286 electoral votes since 1988. overall, his electoral margin
