German police searching for truck attack suspect

German police have issued an arrest warrant for the man suspected over the truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin, warning he should be considered armed and dangerous.

The European arrest warrant indicates the Tunisian man, Anis Amri, has at times used six different aliases and three different nationalities.



German authorities rejected the man’s asylum request in July and say he had already been under investigation on suspicion of preparing a serious act of violent subversion against the state.

Authorities have begun searching a migrant shelter in western Germany where it’s believed Amri was living.

According to German newspaper Rheinische Post say the shelter’s located in the town of Emmerich, which is around 140 kilometres north of Cologne.
