Turkey arrests three Muslims ‘linked to Berlin truck attack’

Turkish authorities have detained three people linked to last year’s deadly attack on a Berlin Christmas market, local media reported Monday, saying the suspects were headed to Europe.

Tunisian attacker Anis Amri hijacked a truck on December 19th, killed its Polish driver and ploughed the vehicle through the market in a attack claimed by the Isis terror group that claimed 11 more lives. The assault left 56 others injured.

Turkish media including the website of leading daily Milliyet said the three suspects, German citizens of Lebanese origin, were detained by anti-terror police at Istanbul’s main Ataturk airport.
