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.
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.
Nearly €4 million have been distributed to the families of victims and those injured in Berlin's Breitscheidplatz terrorist attack. The German government delivered on its pledge to substantially increase payments.
On December 19, 2016, twelve people lost their lives in a terror attack on a Berlin Christmas market. Many have gathered to commemorate their deaths, but questions about the attacker remain unanswered two years later.
Christmas markets are a highlight of the holidays for Germans, but attempts to keep them safe could disrupt the magic. The site of Berlin's devastating 2016 truck attack has now become a testing area for heavy security.
