A "soldier" of the Islamic State (IS) militant group carried out a truck attack that killed 12 people at a Berlin Christmas market, a news agency linked to the Islamist militants said Tuesday.

"A soldier of the Islamic State carried out the Berlin operation in response to appeals to target citizens of coalition countries," the IS-linked Amaq news agency said in a statement posted online.
