A 40-year-old Tunisian man has been detained in Berlin in connection with last week's attack on a Christmas market, German state prosecutors say.
Axar.az reports that, they say his number was found on the phone of Anis Amri, who killed 12 people by hijacking a lorry and ramming it through the stalls.
Police raided the home and workplace of the man in the Tempelhof area of Berlin, German media report.
Officials have until Thursday to decide whether to formally arrest him.
Amri was shot dead by police in Milan early last Friday, four days on from the attack, after the 24-year-old Tunisian opened fire and injured an officer during a routine check.
