The Tunisian suspected of killing 12 people at a Berlin Christmas market was filmed by police in the city shortly after the attack and investigators believe he is still hiding in the German capital, media reported on Friday.

The 24-year-old suspect, Anis Amri, was caught on camera by police officers on a regular stake-out at a mosque in the Moabit district early on Tuesday only a few hours after the attack, rbb public broadcaster reported.Amri was not a suspect at that time, and on Thursday morning, when police raided the mosque, they could not find him, rbb said.

Investigators believe Amri is still lying low in Berlin because he is probably wounded and would not want to attract attention, Der Tagesspiegel, reported citing security sources.
