In a Facebook video, Amri said he would punish “pig eaters” and says: “I pledge my allegiance to the caliph Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. I pledge to participate in jihad against the enemies of Allah. My message to those infidels who bomb Muslims everyday – we are going to slaughter you like pigs. We will avenge the Muslims you killed and continue to kill. And to my Muslim brothers all over the world, fight for this religion whether in your countries or in Europe if you live there, as much as each of you can.”
Not that this has anything to do with Islam.
“World’s most wanted man is dead: Rookie Italian policeman guns down fugitive Berlin killer screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ after he shoots his fellow officer when they confront him in Milan as the Tunisian’s ISIS suicide video is revealed,” by Julian Robinson, Martin Robinson, Dave Burke, Sam Tonkin, Jake Wallis Simon, and Richard Spillett, MailOnline, December 23, 2016:
Berlin truck terrorist Anis Amri has been shot dead after a gunfight with police in Milan in the early hours of this morning.
The Tunisian pulled a gun from his backpack, screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ and opened fire on two officers – hitting one in the shoulder – before being shot dead after getting off a train from France.
Hours later, a suicide video emerged online where Amri pledges allegiance to ISIS and vows to to punish ‘pig-eaters’.
Amri had been on the run for four days after ploughing a lorry into crowds of revellers enjoying a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday night, killing 12 and maiming dozens of others.
The 24-year-old ISIS fanatic was stopped by a routine police patrol in the suburb of Sesto San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Milan at about 3am local time.
Two officers asked him for ID documents, at which point Amri ‘immediately’ pulled a gun from his backpack and shouted ‘police b******s’ as he shot one in the shoulder.
A firefight ensued with Amri cowering behind a car as he tried to flee, but the suspect was shot and killed by the second officer – a trainee who had only been in the job a few months.
ISIS news outlet Amaq today confirmed Amri’s death – and that he carried out the market massacre in Germany and released a video of the terrorist ranting to in to a camera.
Security chiefs believe Amri, who used at least six different aliases with three nationalities, was trying to flee to southern Italy where he had entered Europe illegally in 2011.
Police, who had received a tip-off Europe’s most wanted man may have been in the city, approached Amri because they were suspicious that anyone was at the station at 3am.
The terminal had earlier been closed for the night and officials are trying to work out whether he may in fact have arrived in the suburb, north of the city, by bus.
When the patrol approached him, he pulled a 22 calibre pistol from his backpack and shot one of the two police officers, Cristian Movio, 36, in the shoulder.
He ran for cover and cowered behind a car in a piazza near the station before being shot dead by trainee officer Luca Scata, 29, who had reportedly only been in the job for a matter of months.
On his body police found a train ticket that helped reconstruct the attacker’s movements in Berlin, revealing how he took a train from Chambery in France and then from Turin to Milan. But it is not clear whether he had driven from Berlin to Chambery or taken a 1,000-mile train trip all the way to Milan via Frankfurt – the normal rail route to the south of France.
This morning, Scata was praised for his actions and had received hundreds of messages from wellwishers.
Ranting into a camera as he shoots a selfie-style suicide video, this it the Berlin lorry killer pledging allegiance to ISIS and vowing to punish ‘pig eaters’.
Anis Amri can be seen wearing a dark jacket and standing in front of a river as he delivers his chilling speech, warning he wants to become a martyr.
The brainwashed 24-year-old went on to slaughter 11 revellers enjoying a Christmas market in the heart of Berlin on Monday night.
He also says: ‘I pledge my allegiance to the caliph Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. I pledge to participate in jihad against the enemies of Allah.
‘My message to those infidels who bomb Muslims everyday – we are going to slaughter you like pigs. We will avenge the Muslims you killed and continue to kill.
And to my muslim brothers all over the world, fight for this religion whether in your countries or in Europe if you live there, as mush [sic] as each of you can.’
Scata’s last Facebook post, put up shortly before he shot the terror suspect, stated: ‘Only on the road the sun is shining and there are no shadows.’
It has since been inundated with comments from grateful Italians hailing him a hero and thanking him for his bravery.
It comes hours after two men were arrested at a mosque in Berlin where Amri is believed to have been seen both before and after his murderous rampage. …
Trainee policeman Luca Scatà is just a few months into the job yet still managed to chase down and shoot dead Europe’s most wanted man Anis Amri, 24.
The Sicilian, who works in Milan, approached the killer outside Sesto San Giovanni station in the northern Italian city while on patrol with colleague Christian Movio.
They asked for his ID because he looked like the Berlin terror suspect – Amri pulled a gun from his bag and opened fire, screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’.
Movio was hit in the shoulder and Amri ran through the square trying to hide behind cars while firing. Scatà gave chase and shot him dead in the street. Christian Movio is in hospital but will survive the shooting, police said.
Italian interior minister Marco Minniti said there was ‘no doubt’ the dead man was Anis Amri and paid tribute to the bravery of the officers, naming them in a Rome news conference.
Luca Scatà’s Facebook page has since crashed because so many people are leaving messages of thanks and congratulations.

Ivobbello Triddick added: ‘Thank you and congratulations! You’re a hero, of the real ones, who devote their lives to the country! Long Live Italy!’
In 2011 he dodged prison in his native Tunisia after fleeing following a violent robbery. He was jailed for five years in absentia.
He arrived in Italy in 2011, arriving on the small island of Lampedusa amongst thousands of people fleeing the Arab Spring uprisings. He pretended to be a child migrant – even though he was 19 – but then rioted inside his detention centre, which was set on fire. He was then jailed for four years, serving it in two prisons on Sicily….
