From CNN:

Anis Amri is likely the most wanted man in Europe right now.

Though several people could have been involved in Monday's attack on a Berlin Christmas market that left 12 people dead and 48 injured, Amri is the only suspect who's been publicly identified.

The 24-year-old Tunisia native is considered violent and believed to be armed.

...Amri is one of four children, according to a man who claimed to be Amri's father.
The man said in an interview on Tunisian radio that Amri left Tunisia for Italy about seven years ago after dropping out of school.

While in Italy, he served four years in prison after he was involved in an arson attack on a school, his father said.
Amri left for Germany more than a year ago, his father said.

...While in Germany, authorities had their eye on Amri -- he was believed to be in touch with radical Islamists, including a recruitment network for ISIS operating in Germany, German security officials told CNN.
German authorities should have kept their eye on Amri.
