The UAE embassy in Berlin on Tuesday advised Emiratis in the city to take care and avoid crowded places.

In a tweet, it said citizens should carry identification documents and cooperate with German authorities.

The warning comes after truck plowed into a crowd on a Monday evening at a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people and injuring 48.

In September this year, the UAE consulate in New York issued a similar warning to its citizens to avoid public places and exercise caution following an explosion which killed 29 people.
