Berlin was put on high alert yesterday afternoon after police shot a knife attacker in the capital’s cathedral. A huge police force was called in soon after, and the highly popular tourist attraction was immediately closed.

A few hours later police stated that it did not believe the action was terrorist-related but gave no further details.

In it, you can see a man brandishing a knife inside Berlin's main cathedral. he is quickly surrounded by two policemen and the first one tries to hit him with pepper spray but the man does still continue his stabbing rage.
