BERLIN (AP) — German prosecutors say a man who was arrested after the truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market has been released because there isn't enough evidence to tie him to the rampage. They say the Pakistani citizen who came to Germany last year as an asylum-seeker denied involvement in the attack that killed 12 people and injured nearly 50 others. Witnesses were able to follow the truck's driver from the scene but lost track of him. The man who was arrested matched witness descriptions of the truck driver, but investigators haven't been able to prove that he was in the truck's cab at the time of the attack.

The papers offered no new revelations about a case that factored into the presidential race.

CHICAGO (AP) — Strict rest may not be the best medicine for kids with concussions. That's according to a Canadian study that challenges the idea that physical activity should be avoided until symptoms disappear. A month later, ongoing or worse concussion symptoms were more common in children and teens who were inactive during the week following injury. The researchers say it's still important for kids to be sidelined immediately after a concussion and not allowed to return to play the same day. The study appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
