    German prosecution issued on Thursday a warrant against Anis Amri suspected of having staged a truck ramming attack in Berlin, local media reported.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) – The Bild reported, citing a spokeswoman of the Public Prosecutor General also said that, according to the investigation, Amri personally drove the truck used in the attack.
