ROME, December 23. /TASS/. Tunisian suspect of Christmas market attack Anis Amri has been killed in a shoot-out in Milan, Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti said Friday.
"At 3 am, during normal patrol, the police stopped a car with no lights on. At that moment, the man pulled out a gun and began firing in response to a request to show ID. Police responded with fire. One police officer suffered minor injuries," the minister said.
"The killed person, without any shadow of a doubt, is Anis Amri," Minniti said.
The minister did not specify the details. "The investigation is underway," he said.
Germany's top prosecutor Peter Frank has confirmed the death of Amri. Frank also said that the German prosecutors would continue the investigation of the terrorist attack in Berlin to identify the terrorist's accomplices.
Morocco has warned the German security services twice about Amri's plans to commit a terrorist attack, the German newspaper Welt reported Friday, citing Moroccan sources.
The tragedy occurred late on December 19 when a truck rammed into a crowd of Christmas shoppers at a fair in downtown West Berlin, on Breitscheidplatz near Kurfurstendamm Street. The truck steamrolled on for another 80 meters deeper into the market’s territory. As a result, twelve people were killed and 48, some in critical condition, were taken to hospital. Police have offered a reward of 100,000 euros for any information leading to the Tunisian suspect’s arrest.
The Islamic State group (terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.
