The body of Anis al-Amri, who carried out the Berlin Christmas market attack last year, was buried in his hometown of Al Oueslatia, Kairouan, amid tight security, in the presence of his family members and a few neighbors.

The burial took place without an Islamic Sharia funeral prayer, according to local media outlets.


His family had recently received the body of Anis from a Tunisian hospital Charles Nicolle after he was identified and autopsied.

Earlier on June 30, his body arrived in Tunisia after his family managed to collect the required money to pay for transporting his body from Italy.

In Tunisia, usually the government bears the expense of repatriating bodies of expatriate Tunisians from abroad, but in this case, they refused.
