A car crashed into the gate of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s office in the capital, Berlin, according to eyewitnesses.

The main entrance to the office was sealed off and dozens of police cars and a fire engine rushed to the scene on Wednesday.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Reuters released pictures showing police inspecting the car at the gate with the words "Stop Globalizing Politics" written in white paint on its right side.

Pictures on social media showed the words "you killers of children and old people" written on the other side of the car.

Police did not immediately comment on the incident.

The incident took place as Merkel was scheduled to host a video conference of German state premiers on Wednesday morning in order to discuss an extension to the coronavirus lockdown and further steps to fight the pandemic.

The development comes as Europe is on high alert following a string of terror attacks in the continent in recent months. On October 29, a knife attack, considered a "suspected terror attack," was carried out at the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Nice, France, killing three people, including a woman.
