Police confirm Berlin gun first bought in Switzerland
Swiss police have confirmed the gun used at the Christmas market truck attack in Berlin was bought in Switzerland in the 1990s.
But authorities say there are no records of previous owners – and they don’t know how the attacker obtained the weapon.
Italian police confirm the same weapon was found on the body of the 24 year old attacker when he was shot dead by an officer near Milan.
Investigations into possible Swiss links with the attacker are continuing.
