The suspect alleged to have killed 12 in Berlin is dead. He was a young man with a history of trouble.
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.
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."
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.
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.
