“Car bomb” in Berlin kills driver

An "explosive device" has gone off in a car in Berlin, killing the driver, German police say.

The explosion occurred as the car was moving through the western district of Charlottenburg, heading towards the city centre. It flipped the vehicle up in the air, officials said.

Police told residents in the area to close their windows and stay in the back of their apartments.

But bomb disposal teams later said there was no risk of more explosions.

Police said a murder investigation was under way.
