No sign Berlin market attacker had network in Italy - PM Gentiloni

ROME (Reuters) - There is no sign the man suspected of killing 12 people with a truck at a Berlin Christmas market on Dec. 19 had a network in Italy, Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said on Thursday.

Anis Amri (L), the Tunisian suspect of the Berlin Christmas market attack, is seen in this photo taken from security cameras at the Milan Central Train Station in downtown Milan, Italy December 23, 2016, hours before he was shot dead after pulling a gun on police during a routine check.

Asked at a news conference about Anis Amri, the Tunisian suspect who was shot dead in Milan four days after the attack, Gentiloni said, “We have no evidence of particular networks ... that Amri had in Italy.”

Police are investigating whether Amri, who crossed Europe undetected after the attack, was seeking shelter in Italy or trying to reach another country.
