ISIS has noted the death of Anis Amri, the Tunisian man suspected in a deadly attack on a Christmas market in Berlin and released a video online showing him pledging allegiance to the militant group.

The group has claimed responsibility for the attack outside Berlin's Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, in which a truck plowed into a Christmas market, killing 12 people and injuring 56 others.

Amri was killed early on Friday in a shootout with police in Milan during a routine patrol outside a train station, ending a Europe-wide manhunt.

He has been linked to an extremist recruitment network allegedly run by Ahmad Abdulaziz Abdullah A., also known as Abu Walaa, a Germany-based preacher who was arrested last month, said Holger Muench, the head of the Federal Criminal Police Office, AP reported.
