BERLIN — A 23-year-old Tunisian man emerged as the primary suspect behind the Monday terror attack in Berlin, which killed 12 and injured 48.
The man, identified as Anis A., was born in the Tunisian city of Tataouine in 1992. A refugee, he applied for asylum in Germany in April, according to Suddeutsche Zeitung.
Identity documents left behind in the truck are the primary leads in the investigation. Another suspect was arrested early Wednesday morning but was quickly released.
Die Welt reports the man uses several different identities and also goes by Ahmed A. He lives in Berlin but spends a lot of his time in the western state of North Reine Westphalia, where police are taking “imminent measures.” He is known by police from being part of Salafist circles in Germany.
