A statement from IS Amaq news agency revealed that act was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State in response to calls for targeting citizens of the Crusader coalition.
Islamic State claim surfaced after German prosecutors said they had freed a Pakistani man who came to Germany last year, arrested on Monday night near the scene of the attack because no evidence proved he was in the cab during the attack.
The German government has asked people to be very vigilant. President Barack Obama, was reported to have expressed his condolences while Donald Trump pledged to totally eradicate Islamic extremists with the support of his freedom loving partners.
