German Police Hunting Tunisian Man Suspected of Monday’s Deadly Truck Attack on Berlin Christmas Market
German police are desperately hunting a Tunisian man suspected of Monday’s deadly truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin, hoping to catch him before he can repeat the monstrous act that left a dozen dead and 48 injured, according to reports.
Fox News reports:
“The 23-year-old suspect’s documents were found inside the cab of the truck used to mow down civilians at the market, and he was identified as going by “Ahmed” or “Anis A.,” among other suspected aliases, police sources told German media, including Die Welt. Die Welt, along with most other German media outlets, published photos of the suspect. The manhunt took a new focus after police determined on Tuesday that a Pakistani migrant intially detained after the horrific attack, for which ISIS has claimed credit, proved to be innocent.
“We don’t know for sure whether it was one or several perpetrators,” said Germany’s top prosecutor, Peter Frank. “We don’t know for sure whether he, or they, had support.”
The suspect reportedly has extensive links to militant Islam.”
