BERLIN - Germany's top federal prosecutor said on Friday that the man shot dead by police in the Italian city of Milan was Anis Amri, the Tunisia suspected of plowing a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin.

The prosecutor, Peter Frank, added that the investigation into the attack that killed 12 people would continue to determine whether Amri had any accomplices."Even though the suspect Anis Amri has died, we'll continue our investigation," Frank said. "It's very important for us now to find out whether there was a network of supporters and accomplices, whether there were confidants who helped the sought person to prepare and conduct the attack and to escape."
