Almost all of Tuesday's Scottish front pages focus on the lorry attack in Germany which killed 12 people and injured almost 50.

The Herald says it was a day of "targeted violence" in Europe with the Berlin attack, the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey and shootings near an Islamic Centre in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Times' Scotland edition describes the "Christmas carnage" as a 25-tonne lorry charged through the crowded Christmas market in Berlin.

A picture of the lorry after the attack is on the front page of The Scottish Daily Mail with the headline "Carnage at Christmas market".

The Scottish Daily Express describes the attack as a "slaughter" and says that Britons are feared to be among the victims.

The Scottish Sun also links the Berlin attack with the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, saying that the so-called Islamic State have reportedly claimed responsibility for the German attack.

"Xmas market massacre" is the headline on the front page of the Daily Record, which says a suspect has been arrested by police.

The Press and Journal also reports the arrest after what the paper describes as the "Christmas market horror".

The National has the story of a couple from the United States living in Inverness who have been told they have 30 days to leave the UK.

And The Courier says Dundee FC has "sensationally" pulled out of plans for a £21m regional sports centre in the city's Caird Park.
