Police have revealed they are searching for Anis, Amri, 23, a refugee who came to Germany this year. His passport was found in the truck he used to kill 12 people.

Police say he is armed and a member of a large Islamic organization.

Police originally only released a photo with a blurred out face, but other publications have now uncovered un-blurred photos.

More from Daily Mail:

He is probably armed, ‘highly dangerous’ and a member of a ‘large’ Islamic organisation and has weapons training abroad, security sources say.

The suspect was also in contact with a ‘network of leading Islamist ideologists’. 

This afternoon, police raided a migrant shelter in the town of Emmerich, western Germany, where he is believed to have lived.

Amri, who was born in the desert town of Tataouine in 1992 – a well-known ISIS stronghold close to the Libyan border – was apparently recently arrested for GBH but vanished before he could be charged.

In August 2016 he was arrested with a fake Italian passport and released but his phone was said to be monitored. He then disappeared in December, according to Die Welt.

A Facebook profile in his name shows ‘likes’ linked to Tunisian terror group Ansar al-Sharia, a Tunisian group with followers linked to extremists who murdered 22 at Tunis’ Bardo Museum in March 2015 and then 39 tourists at a beach resort in Sousse.
