Suspect in Berlin Truck Attack Shot by Police in Italy
The suspected driver in the deadly truck attack at a Christmas market in Germany was shot and killed Friday by police in Italy.
The 24-year-old Tunisian man, Anis Amri, was killed during a shootout with two police officers in Milan. Amri pulled out a gun and shot one officer in the arm after he was asked to show identification papers during a normal patrol.
German officials said they had confirmed through fingerprints that the man killed in Milan was the suspect in Monday's truck attack. Amri is suspected of hijacking the truck and killing its driver before driving into a Christmas market in central Berlin.
The attack killed 12 people and injured more than 50 others.
Police said they found documents belonging to Amri inside the truck.
Before Amri was identified as the main suspect, police detained a Pakistani man for possible involvement in the attack. He was later cleared and released.
Germany's head prosecutor told reporters the investigation is continuing. He added that it is not yet known whether other suspects might have helped carry out the attack.
The Islamic State (IS) said the attacker was inspired by its call for people to strike members of a coalition fighting the militant group in Syria and Iraq.
In a video posted by IS's Amaq news agency, Amri pledged his allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He also urged others to carry out attacks on "Crusaders who are striking Muslims daily." He added: "I swear to God that we will come to slaughter you, you pigs."
Officials say Amri arrived in Germany in July 2015, after serving time in jail in Italy for setting fire to a refugee shelter. He sought asylum in Germany but the request was denied. Authorities said he could not be sent back to Tunisia because he had no passport and that country had refused to accept him.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has ordered an investigation into the policies that resulted in Amri staying in the country so long. Merkel is facing increasing political pressure in Germany to take a stronger position on immigration and asylum policies. Her popularity has dropped since Germany opened its border to accept about one million refugees.

24岁的突尼斯男子阿尼斯·阿姆里（Anis Amri）在与两位米兰警察交火时被击毙 。两位进行安检盘查的警察要求阿姆里出示身份证件，他随后开枪打伤一名警察的手臂 。
德国官员表示，通过指纹证实了米兰被击毙男子为周一制造卡车恐袭案的嫌犯 。阿姆里被指劫持卡车并杀害卡车司机，随后驾驶卡车冲进柏林的圣诞集市 。
尚未确定阿姆里为主要嫌犯之前，警方曾拘留了一名可能参与袭击的巴基斯坦男子 。不过该男子随后被释放 。
德国总检察长向记者表示，调查仍在继续 。他补充说，尚不清楚是否有他人帮助策划实施这起袭击 。
“伊斯兰国”Amaq通讯社发布的视频中，阿姆里宣誓效忠伊斯兰国领导人阿布·贝克尔·巴格达迪(Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi) 。他还呼吁其他人对“天天攻击穆斯林的十字军”发动袭击 。他还补充说，“我向上帝起誓，我要消灭你们这群败类！”
据官员介绍，2015年7月，阿姆里抵达德国 。此前，他曾向一处难民收容所纵火而在意大利监狱服刑 。他在德国寻求庇护时遭到拒绝 。当局表示，因为其没有护照，突尼斯拒绝收留，因此无法将其遣返 。
德国总理默克尔已下令对阿姆里得以长期滞留德国的政策进行审查 。面临日益膨胀的国内政治压力，默克尔不得不对移民和庇护政策采取更加强硬的立场 。自从德国开放边境接纳了约100万名难民后，默克尔的支持率已经下降 。
