Suspect in Berlin Truck Attack Shot Dead in Milan, Italy

Berlin, December 23 (RHC)-- Police in Milan, Italy, say they have shot and killed Anis Amri, the main suspect in an attack on a market in Berlin earlier this week.  

Police say Amri opened fire on officers after he was asked to show his ID during a routine traffic stop.  They say one officer was wounded in the shoulder before another officer shot and killed Amri.

The 24-year-old Tunisian was accused of hijacking a truck, killing its driver and then ramming it into a crowded Christmas market on Monday in an attack that left 11 more people dead and dozens wounded.
