The terrorist who perpetrated the Berlin truck terror attack Tuesday night is apparently still at large in Germany, armed and dangerous to the public. Police significantly increased security measures in the country.
In the attack 12 people were killed and 50 wounded, one of them an Israeli who is in serious but stable condition. His wife is reported missing.
In the morning police arrested a 23-year-old Pakistani resident who was thought to be the terrorist. On investigation he denied any connection to the attack and police later announced that he is not the right man they were searching for.
German newspaper Die Welt quoted a Berlin police official as saying. “We have the wrong man, And therefore a new situation — that the real attacker is still at large and can do more harm.” He promised to increase security measures in Berlin’s streets.
