BERLIN (Reuters) - German investigators are in contact with Italian authorities over the Berlin Christmas market attack, a spokesman for the Chief Federal Prosecutor’s office said on Friday.

A man believed to be the suspect in the Berlin truck attack was killed in a shoot-out in a suburb of the northern Italian city of Milan on Friday, a security source told Reuters.
