Anis Amri, the Tunisian wanted for the attack in Berlin was killed  in a shootout by Italian police in Milan at 3 am Friday morning. Amri, who had left behind a video pledging allegiance to ISIS, had arrived by train via France and was stopped for a routine check by a police patrol when he removed a gun from his backpack and opened fire. One cop was wounded in the shoulder.

-Corriere della Sera
"Shootout in Sesto San Giovanni (district of Milan) The body of Amri"

How ironic that the most wanted man in Europe had been able to ride a train through at least two borders with no Customs/Immigration control-a monument to the laxity of EU controls.

In a final note of irony, one of the cops who killed him was named Cristian.
