Berlin Attack Suspect Still at Large; Police Admit Wrong Man in Custody (VIDEO)

Well, how do you say FUBAR in German?

At the Telegraph U.K., "Live - Berlin terror attack Perpetrator 'still at large and has a weapon' as police admit they may have wrong man in custody after arresting asylum seeker":

German police have said they may have arrested the wrong man over the Berlin terror attack, and the real culprit could still be at large and armed and dangerous.

"We must get used to the idea that he was possibly not the perpetrator or that he didn't belong to the group of perpetrators," Germany's chief prosecutor Peter Frank told a press conference.

Police urged people to remain "particularly vigilant" and to report "suspicious movement" to a special hotline.

"We have the wrong man," an unnamed police source told Welt newspaper. "This means the situation is different. The real culprit is still armed and can commit further atrocities."

The man arrested on Monday night under suspicion of ploughing a 7-tonne truck through a Christmas market in the heart of Berlin, killing 12, was named in German media reports as Naved Baluch, a 23-year-old asylum seeker of Pakistani origin.

Baluch has denied involvement in the attack, according to police.

He was picked up about 2 kilometres (1½ miles) away from the scene of the attack, near the Victory Column monument.

At least 48 were injured, some seriously, in the attack, after the vehicle mounted the pavement at about 40mph and crashed into them.

A passenger in the lorry – believed to be the original driver – was later found dead inside. German authorities confirmed that the passenger was a Polish national and that he was not the person in control of the vehicle, which belonged to a Polish delivery company, at the time of the crash...

They won't catch him. They won't catch the suspect. The dude will sink and blend in with the local Islamic community. They'll plan more attacks.

Oh boy Merkel screwed the pooch.
