    The German prosecutor's office has confirmed that four people have been detained over contacts with the suspect, German media reported Thursday.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — The Bild tabloid does not specify where the arrests were carried out, but it is known that early-hours raids took place in apartments and refugee shelters in Berlin, Dortmund and Emmerich.

    German television, meanwhile, said the arrests took place in Dortmund.

    On Monday, a truck rammed into a crowd at the Berlin Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring over 40 others.

    The German Prosecutor’s Office offered on Wednesday a reward of up to 100,000 euros (over $104,400) for leads that would help detain the suspect in the attack, Tunisian national Anis Amri.
