    In its Wednesday edition, the German newspaper Bild published a photo of alleged suspect of the Berlin market attack.

    ​According to Bild, the police are now searching for an Islamist from Tunisia. His name is Anis A., he is 21-23 years old and he has several passports.

    Earlier in the day the Spiegel magazine reported that the identity document of the 23-year old Tunisian applicant for refugee status, called Anis A., was found under the driver seat.

    On Monday, a truck rammed into the crowd at a Berlin Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring 49 more. The country's interior ministry has labeled the incident a terrorist attack.

    On Tuesday, the German Federal Prosecution said that a 23-year-old Pakistani man detained following the attack was released due to no evidence proving his links to the attack.
