Merkel under pressure as hunt continues for Berlin truck attacker

UPDATE 3PM TUESDAY:

A manhunt is under way in Germany for a Tunisian man thought to be responsible for yesterday’s truck attack which killed 12 people at a Christmas market in Berlin. Police announced that they had previously arrested the wrong man, and were now working on the assumption that the perpetrator was still at large. Meanwhile as ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s immigration policy has been – perhaps predictably – fiercely criticized at home and abroad.
