A Europe-wide manhunt - but so far no trace of Anis Amri. German officials say there is a high probability that the Tunisian was in fact the perpetrator of Monday's attack in Berlin. The 24-year-old had been under police surveillance for months.
Authorities are still searching for Cherif C., who fled the Strasbourg Christmas market after the attack. A manhunt is underway in France and Germany, where the 29-year-old had two previous convictions.
The information, provided by Italian police, was apparently released just two weeks after the terror attack. It suggests Amri was part of a Salafist cell that helped him in the attack.
The Strasbourg Christmas market shooting suspect Cherif Chekatt has been shot dead by French police. The jihadi "Islamic State" group says he was one of its militants.
The suspected Strasbourg attacker was named on a French high-security watch list. German authorities, in turn, keep tabs on hundreds of potential terrorists — who are they and what are authorities doing about them?
