MILAN (AP) — An Italian official says the autopsy on the chief suspect in the Berlin Christmas market attack indicates frequent drug use. A court official says Anis Amri used both cocaine and hashish, although not on the day he was killed. Amri was killed during a routine stop by police in a Milan suburb four days after the Dec. 19 truck attack that killed 12 people and injured dozens. It still isn't clear why Amri, a 24-year-old Tunisian, had come to Italy.
