A suspect is in custody after a deadly truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin killed 12 people and injured 48 more, including some with severe injuries — but authorities are casting doubt on whether they have the right man.

The suspect denies involvement, and police officials said at a press conference on Tuesday that they are not entirely certain the man in custody was the driver of the truck. There have been no further arrests, authorities said.

On Twitter, the Berlin police said that because the “temporary arrested suspect” denied the charges, they are “particularly alert.”

Cameron – who called for the “Brexit” referendum that ultimately led to the UK’s stunning departure from the EU – said he would step down from the PM post by October, saying “I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.”  (Photo: Odd Andersen / AFP-Getty via the New York Times)
