BERLIN (AP) — A wanted notice for a Tunisian suspect in the truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin says the man should be considered armed and dangerous. The notice, a European arrest warrant from Germany obtained by The Associated Press, indicates he has at times used six different aliases and three different nationalities. It names Anis Amri as having Tunisian citizenship. But it lists multiple aliases, many of them variants on his name, and Egyptian and Lebanese citizenship as well. German authorities say they rejected the man's asylum request in July.
BERLIN (AP) — Berlin's city government says 12 people are still being treated for very serious injuries after the truck attack on a Christmas market. Twelve people were killed and 48 wounded in Monday night's attack. Berlin's state health ministry says an increasing number of people with lighter injuries are being discharged.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina legislature has begun a special session to consider repealing a law limiting LGBT protections that it approved nine months ago. But some Republicans still prefer to keep House Bill 2. Gov. Pat McCrory called the session after the Charlotte City Council this week gutted its expanded nondiscrimination ordinance. That ordinance led to HB2's passage in March. The Senate's presiding officer — Lt. Gov. Dan Forest — put out a statement saying he doesn't favor repeal and worried it would open the door for another local government to "take us down this path again."
WASHINGTON (AP) — A leader of Donald Trump's transition says the president-elect is no longer interested in his catch phrase "drain the swamp" of Washington. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said his understanding is that Trump "now just disclaims that." Gingrich spoke on National Public Radio. Trump has said he never loved the phrase. But it has continued to be a popular feature on his post-election tour.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump's controversial first campaign manager, is starting a political consulting firm and will not be joining the Trump administration. But Lewandowski won't be far. His new firm, Avenue Strategies, will be located about a block from the White House. Lewandowski led Trump's campaign through his improbable victories in Republican primaries, but he clashed with the president-elect's family and was fired. Still, he remains close to Trump and says he considered "multiple opportunities within the administration."
