A 23-year-old Pakistani man named as Navid B was arrested in connection with the attack on the Berlin Christmas Market, however he denied any knowledge of the attack and is believed to be innocent. Now, a senior police officer, told die Welt newspaper: ‘We have the wrong man. So we have a new situation. The true perpetrator is still armed, at large and can cause further damage.’

The lorry’s original Polish driver, Lukasz Urban, a father of one, was transporting steel beams into Germany, but was found shot in the cab after the crash. The gun has not been found.

Via The Daily Mail:

The Berlin Christmas market killer may still be on the loose with a gun and ready to inflict ‘further damage’ 12 hours after an asylum seeker from Pakistan was chased down and arrested, a senior police chief said today.

Detectives interrogating suspect Naved B, 23, have said he has no blood on his clothes, no injuries and denies hijacking a 25-ton lorry and using it to murder 12 people and injure 48 more last night.

The Pakistani asylum seeker arrested after the Berlin Christmas market massacre was allegedly held for a sex attack in July and was already on the Interpol crime database, it was revealed today

Arrested suspect Naved B, is believed to have entered the country under a false name on New Year’s Eve 2015, and some German newspapers said he may have been radicalised by an ISIS handler after arriving in Germany.
