    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a Thursday statement that he spoke with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and offered condolences over the terror attack on a Christmas market in Berlin.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Monday, a truck rammed into a crowd at the Christmas market in the center of Berlin, killing 12 people and injuring 49 others.

    "Today, I spoke with Chancellor Merkel and offered our condolences for the Berlin terrorist attack," the Twitter message stated. "Canada stands in solidarity with Germany."

    A nationwide manhunt continues for Anis Amri, a 24-year-old asylum seeker whose residence permit was found in the truck, used to ram into the crowd at a busy market in the heart of Berlin. Police also found his fingerprints on the door of the truck.
