Anis Amri
"The Tunisian man wanted for the Berlin lorry attack which killed 12 people and injured 49 had been under surveillance earlier this year, media reports say.

Anis Amri, 23, was reportedly monitored on suspicion of planning a robbery in order to pay for guns but surveillance was lifted for lack of evidence.

Before entering Germany, he served four years for arson in Italy and faced a jail sentence in absentia in Tunisia.

The failed asylum seeker is now the subject of a manhunt across Europe."...image thinkstock

12/20/16, "Twelve people killed after truck ploughs into a Christmas market in Berlin,"
"A SUSPECT has been detained by German police after a truck was deliberately driven into a packed Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people and injuring at least 48 more. 

In what is now being described by Berlin police as a “presumed terrorist attack”, a large lorry was driven into a crowd gathered at the annual Christmas market near the Zoologische Garten train station in the heart of Berlin.

Screams rang out as people gathered in the market to drink mulled wine and shop for Christmas trinkets tried to flee the truck as it ploughed through the wooden stalls.

While Islamic State claimed responsibility for the incident, those responsible had not been publicly identified by police. The attack happened at 8.15pm local time (6.15am AEDT).

The driver of the Polish-registered truck fled the scene but was later arrested by police.

German daily newspaper Die Welt and security sources cited by DPA news agency said that the man behind the wheel was an asylum seeker from Afghanistan or Pakistan who arrived in Germany in February.

The daily Tagesspiegel said the man was known to police but for minor crimes, not links to terrorism."...

"(New York, NY) — “Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today’s horrifying terror attack in Berlin. Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad. These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.”"
