According to breaking reports Tuesday morning, Berlin police aren’t certain they arrested the correct suspect after the attack at a Christmas market Monday.
Police had arrested a 23-year-old Pakistani refugee identified as Naved B., who denied involvement in the attack, but now they are “uncertain” he’s the one who plowed a truck through the crowd, killing 12 and injuring nearly 50 others.
