Berlin Truck attack: Cops detain innocent man, truck attacker still at large
Berlin : In an unintentional mistake, the Berlin cops nabbed an innocent man for alleged truck attack, claimed by Islamic State, in the German capital. The latest information reveals that the man had no involvement in the crime.
Indo-Asian News Agency quoted a high-ranking security official for the information. He also alerted people as the real culprit is still at large and may cause more damage.
"We have the wrong man," Die Welt daily cited a Berlin police official as saying.
"And thus a new situation. The actual perpetrator is still at large and armed, and can inflict more damage."
