An 18-year-old nephew of Berlin truck terrorist Anis Amri has been arrested in Tunisia, amid claims he is part of a terror cell and planned to travel to Europe.
Police swooped to arrest the teenager, named as Fedi, and two other jihadist suspects.
A statement from Tunisia’s interior ministry said the three were members of a ‘terrorist cell… connected to the terrorist Anis Amri who carried out the terrorist attack in Berlin’.
The ministry said Amri had sent Fedi money to join him in Europe.
It is unclear whether the suspects helped Amri flee Berlin.
The interior ministry said Amri had sent money to his nephew and encouraged him to pledge allegiance to ISIS.
‘One of the members of the cell is the son of the sister of the terrorist (Amri) and during the investigation he admitted that he was in contact with his uncle through (the messaging service) Telegram,’ it said.
Amri allegedly urged his nephew to adopt jihadist ‘takfiri’ ideology and ‘asked him to pledge allegiance to Daesh (IS),’ it said.
He told police that Amri, using an alias, sent his nephew money through the post office to join him in Germany to help him and join the terrorist network he headed.
The Tunisian prosecutor’s office has ordered all three men held in pre-trial detention pending further investigation.
