The latest reports are saying there were 35 victims. The 16-year-old is being charged with 24 counts of attempted murder, as 24 victims were struck in the upper body, mainly from behind.
What's so worrisome is that Germany is hosting the World Cup (soccer/football), which starts in two weeks, and runs about a month. Most security will be focused on the stadiums, not on the public viewing areas. The latter are town squares, fields, train stations, etc., where huge screens will be set up so that anybody can watch the games. Some of these PVAs can accommodate 50,000 people, so how are they going to be able to provide security?
