Berlin attacker was a 23-year-old Pakistani: German media

BERLIN: A German newspaper and radio station both claimed that the driver of the lorry that crushed 12 people to death in the city on Monday night, has been identified as a 23-year-old Pakistani refugee.

According to details, a German newspaper claimed that the ‘attacker’ had been identified as Naveed B, a Pakistani refugee who was staying at Flughfen Tempelhof, an old airport which had been converted into a refugee centre.

German radio station RBB-Inforadio claimed that Naveed had entered Germany a year ago as a refugee and had registered in Passau, Bavaria on Dec. 31, 2016. Bavarian Interior Minister confirmed that the attack had been conducted by a refugee.

“If it is confirmed that this attack was committed by someone who has been registered as an asylum seeker in the country, then it must lead to a fundamental reflection on the design of the whole refugee system,” he said.

Meanwhile, German newspaper Die Welt also claimed the same with regard to Naveed B being the alleged driver of the lorry that ploughed through 12 people in Berlin. The paper also claimed that Naveed had been born on 1 January 1993. Meanwhile, German news agency DPA claimed that the driver of the truck could either be a Pakistani or an Afghan citizen.

So far, government authorities have so far not confirmed whether or not the driver is Pakistani.
