Berlin: Shunning the arrested Pakistani story as the person who killed 12 people in Berlin, German Police is now pursuing a Tunisian man in relation to the truck attack on a Christmas market,as stated by German media.

German leading paper Der Spiegel reported that police had found an identity document under the driver’s seat of the truck in the name of Anis A, born in Tataouine in 1992, and that the suspect was believed to use different names.

Checks are being made in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia, where the suspect was registered.

Police sources have told German media that the suspect had applied for asylum and that his case was under review. He was reportedly known to police as a dangerous person with links to Salafist groups in western Germany.
