Nice: Four people taken into custody in connection with terror attack

Four people have reportedly been arrested by the French authorities in connection with the horrific Bastille Day attack in Nice on 15 July. At least 84 people were killed and several others critically injured when a truck ploughed through a crowd of Bastille Day revellers.

The driver of the truck has been identified as 31-year-old Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. He was shot dead after driving two kilometres through the crowd, sending hundreds fleeing in terror and leaving the area strewn with bodies.

The Nice attack comes eight months after Islamic State terrorists attacked Paris nightspots, killing 130 people and dealing a hard blow to tourism in one of the world's top destinations.
