Trier (AP) - After a car driver went amok in Trier with five dead and numerous injured, more than 100 people prayed in the cathedral for the victims and their relatives on Tuesday evening.

"A terrible day for Trier is coming to an end," said Bishop Stephan Ackermann of Trier.

"We are gathered here in the cathedral and in other churches in our city that evening, stunned and sad."

Not only Trier is “in shock at the brutal act of violence”.

Lights were placed on the steps in front of the altar. They also prayed in silence. First and foremost, think of the dead who "fell victim to an act of blind rage". "And we think of their relatives," said the bishop. Prayers were also made for the injured, the rescue workers and people traumatized by the crime.
