"Be strong, little bear." An outpouring of sadness and solidarity have been expressed on social media after Monday's attack in Berlin. People from all over the world shared their sadness online.
According to data obtained by Welt newspaper, German authorities knew more than a year in advance that Anis Amri presented a clear danger. Intelligence services may have hoped that he would lead them to other terrorists.
Shortly before the anniversary of the 2016 Berlin terror attack, Chancellor Angela Merkel has paid a surprise visit to Breitscheidtplatz's Christmas market. Survivors recently criticized Merkel's handling of the attack.
Police in Berlin have said that two bags of bullets found near a Christmas market in western Berlin had no link to terrorist activities. The munitions were uncovered in an underground car park.
German police have carried out nine raids in connection with an investigation into Berlin's Islamist scene and last December's Christmas market attack. Some suspects are thought to have joined the "Islamic State."
