The Islamic State claimed responsibility Tuesday for the truck rampage through a crowded Christmas market here, as German authorities released a suspect for insufficient evidence in the attack that killed 12 people and injured 48.

“We may still have a dangerous criminal out there,” Berlin police chief Klaus Kandt said in acknowledging that the driver of the truck was still at large.

The detained suspect, a Pakistani who arrived in Germany last year, denied involvement in Monday's attack, and no forensic evidence showed he was in the cab of the truck.

The Islamic State called the attacker a "soldier" of the militant group, its Amaq News Agency reported.
