Tunisia Arrests 18-Year-Old Nephew of Berlin Killer Anis Amri
Tunisian state officials have announced the arrest of the 18-year-old nephew of Anis Amri, the radical Muslim who carried out a bloody terror attack at a Berlin Christmas market earlier this week, killing 12 and wounding dozens more.
According to Tunisia, Fedi -- as the boy is called -- was part of Amri's terror cell. He supposedly planned to travel to Europe, where he intended to carry out a terror attack of his own. Two other men who belonged to the same terror cell as Fedi and Amri were also arrested.
The country's interior ministry said that Amri had sent money to his nephew so he could join him in Europe. The Berlin killer had also told his nephew to join ISIS and pledge allegiance to its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
In its statement the ministry explained:
One of the members of the cell is the son of the sister of the terrorist (Anis Amri) and during the investigation, he admitted that he was in contact with his uncle through the messaging service Telegram.
Furthermore, Amir had told his nephew to adopt the same hateful jihadist ideology and "asked him to pledge allegiance to Daesh [ISIS]."
And that's not all.
