    Moroccan security services have warned Germany about a potential threat posed by Tunisian national Anis Amri, the main suspect in the Christmas market truck attack before the deadly incident in the German capital, media reported Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moroccan law enforcement agencies warned Germany's Federal Intelligence Service (BND) about the threat posed by Amri and his potential links with the Islamic State (IS, outlawed in Russia) jihadist group, on September 19 and on October 11, the Mondafrique news portal reported.

    On Monday, a truck rammed into a crowd at the Christmas market in the center of Berlin, killing 12 and injuring 49 people.

    The German Prosecutor’s Office offered on Wednesday a reward of up to 100,000 euros ($104,200 at the current exchange rates) for leads that would help detain Amri.
