    Deadly Truck Attack in Berlin (93)

    German special police have raided three apartments in Berlin as search continues for a Tunisian man suspected of having links to the deadly Christmas market attack, local media reported Thursday.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — The searches were carried out simultaneously in Berlin’s districts of Kreuzberg, Moabit and Prenzlauer Berg at around 4 a.m. local time (03:00 GMT), according to the Bild newspaper.

    The suspect, identified by German prosecutors as 24-year-old Anis Amri, was not found at any of the locations, the outlet reported. A Europe-wide manhunt has been underway since Wednesday.

    German investigators are looking for an attacker who hijacked a Polish truck and rammed it late Monday into a busy Christmas market in central Berlin, killing 12 people and injuring 49. The only suspect was detained at the scene and released Tuesday for lack of evidence.
