Dashcam footage of the attack on the Christmas market in Berlin has been released online. The video became available as police launched a series of raids across the country as they tried to find Anis Amris, the Tunisian ISIS memeber responsible for the attack that left 12 dead and 48 injured.
Amri was born in the desert town of Tataouine in 1992. Amri used a pistol to kill Polish truck driver Lukasz Uran, before taking control of the truck, which he then drove directly into the market at Breitscheidplatz, which is near the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

In August 2016 he was arrested with a fake Italian passport and released but his phone was said to be monitored. He then disappeared in December, according to Die Welt. A Facebook profile in his name shows ‘likes’ linked to Tunisian terror group Ansar al-Sharia whose extremists murdered 22 at Tunis’ Bardo Museum in March 2015 and then 39 tourists at a beach resort in Sousse.
Amri has temporary permission to stay in the country but was due to face an asylum hearing. Police are believed to have found his blood in the truck’s cab and now assume that the suspect may be badly injured.
Amri was living in Berlin but police believe he has links to North Rhine-Westphalia – the industrial region of Germany containing Cologne, Dortmund and Bonn. His ID was issued on the town of Kleve close to the border with the Netherlands and Belgium.
