Anis Amri, the Tunisian national suspected of crashing a lorry into a Berlin Christmas market on Monday, has been shot dead, FAZ quotes security sources as saying.

Italy's Interior Minister Marco Minniti has confirmed the news in a press conference.

Some media reports suggest he arrived in Milan by taking a train via France.


Twelve people died in the attack and forty-eight were injured.

A Europe-wide search was launched after German police released a man that turned out to have been the wrong suspect.
