Berlin poker raid captured on film

Video footage has emerged of the moment when armed robbers stormed a poker tournament at a luxury hotel in Berlin, German.

One report said the gang - armed with assault rifles and hand grenades - made off with the tournament jackpot of 800,000 euros ($1.1m; £726,000).

Several people were injured in the ensuing panic, although none of them seriously.

These eyewitnesses described what happened.
