According to reports in a German newspaper, the country’s police believe they have arrested the wrong man over Monday’s terror Berlin attack that killed 12 people and injured 48 German. “We have the wrong man,” an unnamed police source told Welt newspaper. “This means the situation is different. The real culprit is still armed and can commit further atrocities.”
They said real perpetrator could still be at large.
A man arrested on Monday night under suspicion of ploughing a 7-tonne truck through a Christmas market in the heart of Berlin, killing 12, was named in German media reports as Naved Baluch, a 23-year-old asylum seeker of Pakistani origin.
