    A police operation is underway in Berlin’s central Prenzlauer Berg district, where special operations units raided a home overnight in search of the Christmas market attack suspect, local media reported Thursday.

    MOSCOW, (Sputnik) — Underground and tram traffic has been stopped as police were deployed to the Schoenhauser Allee street, the Tagesspiegel newspaper reported. A nearby shopping mall has been cordoned off.

    The outlet said the reason for the police deployment was not clear yet. The Berlin public transport company, BVG, claimed on Twitter a suspicious object had been found, adding it could have been an ownerless backpack.

    Separately, the Berlin police announced it had lifted cordons around the Budapester Strasse near the site where the truck rammed into a Christmas market on Monday, killing 12 people and injuring 49.
