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.”
