State prosecutors have charged an Islamist with planning a bomb attack in Germany alongside Anis Amri. The plot to "kill as many people as possible," was foiled by police in 2016.
Magomed-Ali C. was arrested in August 2018 on suspicion of planning a bomb attack at a Berlin shopping center. He allegedly had close ties to the man who killed 11 people at a Christmas market in the capital in 2016.
Dresden's Striezelmarkt, which claims to be Germany's oldest, opens this Wednesday (Nov, 28) for the 584th time. As on other German Christmas Markets, here too, security is a permanent fixture.
