German police offer reward for lead in search for Christmas market terrorist

German authorities are offering a reward of up to 100,00 euros for information leading to the capture of the main suspect in Monday’s terror attack in Berlin.

German police are still searching for the terrorist – or terrorists – who committed Monday’s attack on a crowded Berlin Christmas market that killed 12 and wounded 48.

They arrested a suspect from Pakistan soon after the rampage, but he was released on Tuesday for lack of evidence.

Authorities have identified a new suspect, Anis Amri, whose documents police found under the driver’s seat of the truck that drove into the Christmas shoppers. He is believed to be armed and dangerous.

Amri, a male from Tunisia in his early 20s, had been investigated over an earlier terror plot and was under surveillance for several months, a German official said, adding that he could not be deported due to missing paperwork.

A reward of up to 100,00 euros – close to $105,000 – is being offered for information leading to his capture.

The Islamic State (ISIS) terror group claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack.
