Anis Amri, the chief suspect in Monday’s truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market, has been shot dead by police in Milan.

Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti told a news conference on Friday morning that Amri was killed during a shootout with police at 3am.

Amri opened fire during a routine check when he was asked for his identity documents by police in Milan who had spotted him acting suspiciously.

He shot and injured an officer and was himself killed in the exchange of fire that followed.

An international manhunt has been underway for the 24-year-old Tunisian since Monday’s 
attack in Berlin which killed 12 people.

German media reports say he travelled by train to Milan via France.
