German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere confirmed Wednesday that authorities have identified a new suspect in the deadly truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin.

"There is a new suspect we are searching for -- he is a suspect but not necessarily the assailant," he told reporters.

He declined to immediately confirm numerous media reports that the suspect was a Tunisian asylum seeker with links to the Islamic extremist scene.
