Already under fire for the handling of the Anis Amri case that resulted in the Berlin market attack, the German government is now under added pressure because three individuals who are considered dangerous are nowhere to be found. -Vasilis Chronopoulos


Burkhard Lischka, a parliamentary spokesman for the Social Democrats, said three of the nearly 550 individuals identified as Islamist threats in Germany could not be found.

Speaking after a meeting of the internal affairs committee in Berlin, Lischka held up as a warning the case of Anis Amri, a failed asylum seeker from Tunisia who fell off the authorities’ radar despite long being regarded as a threat. Last month, the 24-year-old ploughed a truck through a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people and wounding dozens more.
