Berlin's Christmas market reopens amid manhunt

The Berlin Christmas market where a suspected Islamist extremist killed at least 12 people reopened Thursday with the addition of concrete barriers to prevent a repeat attack.

The market's reopening in Berlin's Breitscheidplatz district on comes amid a large-scale manhunt for 24-year-old Tunisian suspect Anis Amri.

Police carried out raids in the city of Dortmund in western Germany but have not apprehend Amri, German prosecutors said. German news outlet Bild reported four suspects who were in contact with Amri were arrested but a prosecutor spokesman said he was not aware of any arrests.

Officials also carried out raids at a migrant center in Emmerich, where Amri briefly stayed in 2015, and at Berlin addresses.
