Italy: Berlin Truck Attack Suspect Killed In Shootout Near Milan

The top suspect in the Dec. 19 truck attack at a Berlin Christmas market was shot and killed by Italian police overnight outside Milan, Italy's interior minister said, the New York Times reported Dec. 23. Anis Amri, a Tunisian man who arrived in Europe in 2011, was the subject of an intense Europe-wide manhunt after police found some of his personal papers in the cab of the truck used in the attack. At around 3 a.m. Dec. 23, he was pulled over in what appears to be a routine traffic stop by Italian police. When asked to present identification, he reportedly grabbed a gun from his backpack and shot the inquiring officer, who appears to have suffered non-life-threatening wounds. A second officer then fatally shot Amri. Undoubtedly, the effects of the Berlin attack will not be confined to Germany.
