    Deadly Truck Attack in Berlin (93)

    Anis Amri, a Tunisian national, suspected in a terrorist attack on Christmas market in Berlin, went through Belgium's capital en route to Italy, media reported Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On December 19, Amri, a 24-year-old asylum seeker from Tunisia, allegedly drove a heavy truck into a crowd at the Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square in Berlin, killing 12 people and injuring almost 50 others. A few days later Amri was shot by police in Milan, Italy.

    Amri passed through Bruxelles-Nord train station, likely on a train from Amsterdam, French BFMTV broadcaster reported, citing Belgium's prosecutors' office.

    Earlier on Wednesday, media said German police were investigating two people who had been connected to Amri and their possible participation in the attack.
