Berlin Market Attack Suspect Anis Amri Killed In Police Shootout In Italy

The Berlin market attacker, Anis Amri, has been shot dead by police in Milan. The Tunisian national fired on police who asked him for ID during a routine patrol in the Sesto San Giovanni area in the early hours of Friday . . .

German authorities say fingerprints they provided have confirmed the dead man is Amri. They are trying to find out if he had accomplices.

Monday’s attack on a Berlin Christmas market left 12 people dead and 49 injured.

The suspected attacker – 24-year-old Tunisian Anis Amri – traveled to Italy from France.

An Italian police chief said his men had no idea they might be dealing with Amri when they approached him at around 3 a.m. (2200 EDT) outside a station in Sesto San Giovanni, a suburb of the northern city of Milan.

Anis Amri is suspected of driving a heavy truck that smashed through a Berlin Christmas market on Monday killing 12 people, and security forces across Europe have been trying to track him down.

The truck mowed through a crowd of people and bulldozed wooden huts selling Christmas gifts and snacks beside a famous church in west Berlin.

Militant group Islamic State acknowledged Amri’s death and his suspected role in the German attack – for which it has claimed responsibility – through its Amaq news agency.
