6:11 pm
connection with these investigations. police knew amri had links to a network of isis recruiters in germany. in a new video released by the terror group's media site, amri pledged allegiance to the leader of isis. for months, amri was on a german intelligence list of the most dangerous islamists in the country -- a list 549 names long. paul cruickshank/terrorism analyst:the worry is that there are other people connected to this attacker still at large. both italy and germany tried to deport amri back to tunisia unsuccessfully. that fact led to a conversation between the german chancellor and the tunisian president. angela merkel/german chancellor: i told the president that we need to be able to speed up the process of returning nationals. and that's not all -- merkel says she's will look at other way to prevent a similar attack. in washington, im scott mclean. one of anis amri's brothers is speaking out. he had this message for the people of berlin today. "we apologize to the people of berlin, those who were killed were innocent people. we ask for their forgiveness and we apologize to them again." the attack on the christmas market in berlin left 12 people dead and dozens more injured. police say the hijackers who took over a libyan plane this morning wanted to go to rome.
