0

German security forces are offering a reward of up to €100,000 in the hunt a 24-year-old Tunisian who is wanted for the Berlin Christmas market attack.
Nine people were killed and nearly 50 injured on Monday when a lorry was driven into the market off Berlin’s Kurfurstendamm.
Anis Amri had served a jail sentence in Italy and had previously been monitored in Germany after police believed he may have been planning a robbery to pay for guns. Those checks were stopped for lack of evidence.
It is thought Amri killed the Polish driver of the lorry before using it to drive into the packed shopping street.
So-called Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.
Among the injured is a 21-year-old Spaniard, Iñaki Ellakuria, according to reports.
