|The Berlin attack suspect has been shot dead after a gunfight with police in Milan, Italian police have said|
The Tunisian shouted 'Allahu Akbar' and shot a police officer in the shoulder before he was shot dead moments after getting off a train from France.
A major international manhunt had been launched for the asylum seeker, who ploughed a lorry into crowds of revellers in the German capital on Monday night, killing 12 and maiming dozens of others.
He is understood to have pulled a gun on a police patrol after being stopped for a routine ID check before shooting an officer in the shoulder leaving him seriously injured.
A shoot out then took place at about 3am local time after he had stepped off a train from France and he was reportedly heard shouting 'Allahu Akbar' as he tried to flee.

Two officers asked him for ID documents, at which point Amri pulled a gun from his backpack and shot one of the policemen in the shoulder.
A firefight ensued at about 3am local time, with Amri taking cowering behind a car as he tried to flee, but the suspect was shot and killed by the other officer – a trainee who had only been in the job a few months.
An Italian minister said today they had 'without a shadow of a doubt' killed the chief suspect in the Berlin massacre.
