The terrorist who killed three churchgoers in Nice this morning is a 21-year-old man from Tunisia. French media say it knows his identity based on sources surrounding the investigation. He is said to have arrived as a migrant on the Italian island of Lampedusa at the end of last month.
There he was released at a certain point with the order that he had to leave Italy. At the beginning of this month he traveled to France. He has not applied for asylum and was not known to the French police or French security services.
Police have not confirmed the identity of the suspect, who is injured in a hospital. According to the French news channel BFMTV, fingerprints are used to determine who he is. The name mentioned is on a document from the Italian Red Cross found with him, but a photo is missing.
Stop with knife
The perpetrator of the attack entered the Notre-Dame Basilica in the center of Nice with a knife at 09:00. His first victim was a woman in her seventies. She was found with a slit throat near a holy water vessel. “Nearly decapitated,” a police source told Le Figaro.
The sexton, a father of two daughters who had been working for the parish for ten years, was also murdered. “An ordinary boy”, according to a priest in the same newspaper.
The third victim, a woman of around 45, sustained multiple stab wounds. She managed to escape, but died shortly afterwards in a cafe nearby.
The perpetrator was shot upon arrest and taken to hospital.
