BREAKING: German security official now says two are dead in Muenster van crash plus the driver who killed himself. Earlier, police said 3 died.

A top German security official says there is no indication of an Islamic extremist motive in the deadly van crash in the German city of Muenster but officials are investigating all possibilities.
Herbert Reul, the interior minister of North Rhine-Westphalia state, where Muenster is located, said the driver of the van that crashed Saturday afternoon into a crowd outside a popular bar was a German citizen. He stressed the investigation is at an early stage but said “at the moment, nothing speaks for there being any Islamist background.”
Reul added: “we are investigating in all directions.”
Reul said two people were killed in the crash and the driver then killed himself. That’s lower than the figure police previously gave of three dead plus the driver. Police still say 20 people were injured in the crash, with six of them in severe condition.
