German police special forces have stormed a hangar at Berlin’s defunct Tempelhof airport, which now houses Berlin’s biggest refugee accommodation centre, according to German magazine Focus.

It comes hours after a truck ploughed into a crowd at a Berlin Christmas market on Monday evening, killing 12 people and injuring 48 others.

Four young men were questioned at the police station in the refugee camp, but there were no arrests, according to Sascha Langenbach, spokesman for the refugee agency.

The operation, which also involved forces from the special unit (SEK), began at 3am and lasted five hours, involving up to 250 officials, Welt.de reported.
