Four Arrested Over Nice Terror Attack

Four men believed to be linked to Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel (31) who killed at least 84 people - including 10 children - after driving a lorry into a Bastille Day crowd have been arrested as police carry out raids in Nice, France.

A man covered with a towel was apprehended by French police this morning as the investigation continued two days after the savage attack on the Promenade des Anglais.

Officers arrested three people in Nice early on Saturday - and one on Friday night - in connection with the probe into the horrific incident when a truck rammed into crowds in the Riviera city.

The arrests come as ISIS claimed responsibility for the deadly attack and described Bouhlel as a 'soldier of the Islamic State'.

Police searched the last known home of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel in Nice, France and held his estranged wife for questioning.

31-year-old Bouhel was married with three children but it was reported that he and his wife were going through divorce proceedings.

France has begun a period of national mourning for the 84 people who were killed following the attack in Nice.
