The German government is set to look into negligence by security officials in the case case of Anis Amri, suspect in the 2016 truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin.
A German court has issued an arrest warrant for a 32-year-old Tunisian IS member who allegedly led Anis Amri to drive a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, German media say. Amri messaged the man from the stolen truck.
German MPs investigating the case of Anis Amri have decided to go to court to get access to intelligence documents. They say Angela Merkel's government withheld what it knew about the Berlin Christmas market attacker.
Five Tunisians suspected of belonging to a terror network have been arrested. Italy has been swooping in on suspected terror networks in recent weeks amid heightened concern of an attack.
The Bundestag will re-examine why Germany's security authorities failed to stop Anis Amri. The asylum seeker killed 12 people when he drove a truck into a Berlin Christmas market in 2016.
