MILAN, Italy (AP) — A manhunt that extended across Europe is over, with today's death of Anis Amri in a shootout with police in Milan, Italy. They had spotted him during a routine patrol outside a train station. Amri was the Tunisian man who was suspected of carrying out the Christmas market attack in Berlin earlier this week that left 12 people dead. Italian police say he traveled from Germany through France and into Italy after the attack -- at least some of it by train. French officials are refusing to comment on how he got through the country unnoticed.

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin says he hopes to have a meeting with Donald Trump and discuss how to improve ties. Putin, speaking at a news conference Friday, said the meeting could happen after the president-elect finishes forming his team. The Russian leader says he agrees with Trump's assessment of the current low level of U.S.-Russian relations, adding that they "can't be worse." Russia's relations with the United States and its allies have plummeted to their lowest level since the Cold War times.

PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump is complaining about the pressure that led his son to stop directly raising money for a foundation. Eric Trump said he would stop soliciting donations because he worried about the perception of buying access to his father. He says his namesake foundation has raised more than $15 million for terminally ill children. Trump tweeted today that his son "will no longer be allowed to raise money for children with cancer because of a possible conflict of interest" with Trump's presidency. The president-elect calls it a "ridiculous shame." The tweets followed an Associated Press report that Eric Trump's foundation financially benefits charities connected to his family and members of his foundation's board.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A spokeswoman says the nation's largest railroad has addressed more than 800 potential safety violations found by federal railroad inspectors on lines that are used to haul crude oil and other hazardous materials. Union Pacific Railroad and the Federal Railroad Administration confirm they've reached an agreement intended to improve track safety by requiring more thorough inspections. The agreement comes after a Union Pacific train hauling tankers filled with North Dakota crude oil derailed in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, sparking a massive fire.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stock indexes are edging lower on Wall Street as trading slows down ahead of the Christmas holiday. Retailers and technology have been lower today, while health care stocks rose.
