|Description||Reported truck hijacking in Berlin attributed to ISIL.|
The 2016 Berlin attack occurred on the evening of 19 December 2016. The BBC reported the next day that ISIL had claimed responsibility for the attack.
Wikipedia names Anis Amri as the "assailant", but as of January 2019 did not have a separate page for him. CNN reported that "The suspect’s identity papers were found inside the truck."
A German court issued an arrest warrant for Meher D., who allegedly led Anis Amri to commit the attack.
London's "Ring Of Steel" plan was floated after the 2016 Berlin attack.
