    An Air Berlin flight from the German capital to Stockholm was inspected upon landing at Arlanda Airport on suspicion that Tunisian national Anis Amri, the main suspect in the Christmas market truck attack, could be on board the aircraft, Swedish media report.

    STOCKHOLM (Sputnik) – Police partially blocked off one of the Stockholm Arlanda Airport terminals on Thursday night and searched the plane, however, no suspicious individuals were found on the Air Berlin flight, Sweden’s SVT broadcaster reported on Thursday.

    On Monday, a truck rammed into the crowd at a Berlin Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring over 40 others. The country's Interior Ministry considers the incident a terrorist attack.

    A nationwide manhunt continues for Amri, a 24-year-old asylum seeker from Tunisia, whose residence permit was found in the hijacked Polish truck. Police also found his fingerprints on the door of the truck.
