At least four people were killed and dozens injured after a minivan plowed into a farmer’s market in Beijing on Wednesday, The Sun reported. Authorities detained the van’s driver, according to the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau.

While it was not immediately clear whether the episode was intentional or accidental, it comes on the heels of another tragic apparent terror attack.

The incident in Chikou Town, which is a remote suburban area of Beijing, comes just two days after a terror attack in Berlin. A suspected jihadi killed 12 people when he drove a truck into the crowd at a Christmas market. The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
