In this clip, Anis Amri, the attacker who drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin on December 19, 2016, killing 12 and wounding more than 50, pledges allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and calls on Muslims to travel to Syria and to conduct attacks in Europe.

On screen: "The will of the soldier of the Islamic State who carried out the Berlin and Milan attacks."

Anis Amri: "Blessed by Allah, Lord of Mankind. Blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad, who was sent with a sword, as mercy for Mankind. I am pledging allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.


"This is my message to the Crusaders, who bombard the Muslims every day: Allah willing, we have brought slaughter upon you, you pigs! By Allah, we have brought slaughter upon you. You bombard the Muslims, but they have a nation behind them. Their blood will not go in vain, Allah willing.


"Oh brothers, immigrate and wage jihad for the sake of Allah, support this religion. Everyone should do what he can. Every person should support the religion with whatever he can. Those who are able to immigrate should immigrate, those who can carry out local attacks should do so, and those who are in Europe should fight those 'Crusader pigs.'"
