ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Jewish, Muslim and Christian representatives attended a traditional lighting ceremony for Hanukkah in Berlin on Tuesday night (December 27) which this year was dedicated to the victims of last week's truck attack which killed 12 people and injured 48 others. Or Elyakim, son of Dalia Elyakim who was killed on December 19 when a truck deliberately ploughed through a Berlin Christmas market, lit the fourth candle on the 10-metre high menorah, Europe's largest, the organisers said. The Tunisian assailant, 24-year-old Anis Amri, was shot dead by Italian police in shootout on Friday (December 23) after a European-wide manhunt. In a video released after his death, he is seen pledging his allegiance to militant group Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
