Twelve people died when a truck was plowed into a packed Berlin Christmas market. This exclusive dash cam footage showing the moments immediately before and after the attack.
Islamic State claims responsibility. An undated video released by the jihadists is said to show Amri pledging his allegiance. He was pursued by police after his fingerprints and ID were found in the wreck. The Tunisian is thought who have left for Italy as an economic migrant in 2011 where he was in prison for arson after attempting to set fire to a school he had attended.
He also faced convictions for vandalism, threats, and theft in Italy and his home land. Italy kick him out. After arriving in Germany, he was refused asylum, but avoided deportation due to missing paperwork. Now, security services are under fire for letting him slip through the net at a time of heightened alert across the continent.
The shootout came as, that same morning, German special forces arrested two men suspected of plotting an attack on a shopping mall in the country's west.
