Manhunt Underway for Germany Terror Suspect
The manhunt continues for the suspect in the Germany truck massacre that killed 12 and injured 48 others this week at a Christmas market. Authorities continue to gather intelligence on suspect Anis Amri who was seen before and after the attack at a mosque in Germany's capital city of Berlin.
According to the latest report by the Associated Press, "The mosque was raided by police Thursday, two days after documents naming the 24-year-old Tunisian were found in the cab of the truck that smashed into a Christmas market in the west of the city, killing 12 and injuring dozens more."
A German newspaper is also reporting that they believe Amri suffered cuts to the face and he may still be in Berlin.
The Associated Press continued, "Prosecutors' spokeswoman Frauke Koehler told reporters there were searches at "various locations" in North Rhine-Westphalia state and in the capital on Thursday. Authorities also checked a bus in the southwestern German city of Heilbronn after receiving a tip. They haven't yet made any arrests.
Koehler said Amri's fingerprints have been found on the driver's door and on the side of the truck. She added: "We believe that Anis Amri was steering the truck."
Prosecutors issued a formal arrest warrant against Amri. That formality will enable them to hold him pending a possible indictment once he is arrested."
