BERLIN (AP) — A German police official says it's possible that suspects involved in yesterday's truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin are still at large. He says authorities still aren't sure that the suspect they have in custody was the driver. And they haven't yet found a pistol that was used to kill the truck's passenger. The official says it is not known overall how people were involved. He says six of the 12 people who were killed have been identified and all were Germans.

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A ceremony has been held at the Ankara airport in Turkey for assassinated Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov, whose body is being flown home to Russia. His wife wept as his flag-draped coffin was carried by a Turkish honor guard. Karlov was shot dead yesterday evening as he delivered a speech at a photo exhibition in the Turkish capital. His attacker, a member of Ankara's riot police squad, shouted slogans about the battered Syrian city of Aleppo during the attack. He was later killed by police.

PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Donald Trump is taking issue with Bill Clinton's criticisms of him. Clinton told a weekly newspaper earlier this month that Trump "doesn't know much" -- but that Trump knows how to "get angry, white men to vote for him." The ex-president also claimed that the president-elect called him after his election victory over Hillary Clinton. In a two-part tweet today, Trump says it was Bill Clinton who called him, not vice-versa. And he adds that it's Clinton who "doesn't know much" -- especially how to get people to vote in swing states. Trump fired off those tweets the morning after he formally won the presidency in Monday's Electoral College tally.

PRAGUE (AP) — Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIHT'-oh-vuh) says she's "fortunate to be alive" after she was injured by an attacker with a knife at her home today in the Czech Republic. She says she suffered a "severe" injury to her left hand while trying to defend herself. She's left-handed -- and there's no word yet on how the injury might affect her play. The attacker is still at large.
