Germany prosecutors probed Berlin attack suspect for fraud
BERLIN - Prosecutors in western Germany say the man accused of carrying out last week's deadly truck attack in Berlin, was also suspected of collecting asylum-seeker benefits in two German towns.
German officials say Anis Amri, who's believed to have driven the truck that plowed into a Christmas market, killing 12 people, was investigated for fraud earlier this year, but the investigation was shelved because his whereabouts were unknown.
Days after the Berlin attack, a police officer killed Amri in Italy.
