A German man who is suspected of having killed at least five people and injuring several others when he ploughed his car into a shopping street in Trier on Tuesday was driving while intoxicated, the city’s chief prosecutor said, adding that there were ‘no indications that the motive is of a terrorist, political or religious nature’. Five people including a nine-month-old baby were killed and up to 15 injured when the man’s speeding SUV car hit shoppers in a pedestrian area in the south-western German city in what authorities said appeared to be a deliberate act
