Germany’s Ambassador to Greece, Ernst Reichel, expressed his sadness over the death of two Greek nationals in the German city of Trier, after a German man ploughed a speeding car into a pedestrian zone on Tuesday.

“It is doubly saddening that a young Greek family is among the victims of the tragic attack in Trier. My thoughts are with them and with the other victims,” the ambassador said in a message on Twitter, commenting on the news.

In a statement, the foreign ministry said the two Greek nationals were among the victims: a 45-year-old man, who was identified by his initials G.K., and his nine-week old baby. The man’s wife, as well as the couple’s 17-month baby, were in hospital, the ministry said without providing further details about their condition.
