In December 2016 a truck deliberately rammed a crowd of Christmas shoppers in Berlin; the attack killed 12 and injured 56. The perpetrator, Anis Amri, had pledged allegiance to Islamic State, and was shot dead by police in Italy.
A year after the tragedy, families of the Berlin Christmas market terrorist attack victims are yet to receive any sound explanation as to why the perpetrator was not detained by the German security forces when they had a chance.
The Tunisian man, who slammed a truck through a crowd at a Berlin Christmas market killing 12 people, obtained the gun he used to hijack the vehicle in Switzerland, according to the German TV channel ZDF.
The truck used to crash through a crowded Christmas market in Berlin may soon become a museum piece at the House of History in Bonn, despite it being used as a terrorist weapon to murder dozens of innocent people.
Anis Amri, the Berlin Christmas market attack suspect killed by Italian police in Milan, may have traveled half of Europe to shake off his pursuers. Dutch police suspect he may have entered the country after the attack in Germany.
Surveillance footage confirms that Berlin attack suspect Anis Amri fled to Italy, where he was later gunned down by police, via the French city of Lyon, according to a source close to the investigation.
