NEWS: In the wake of Thursday night’s alleged terror attack in Nice that claimed 84 lives, police in Nice arrested three people in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The estranged wife of the perpetrator, 31 year-old Tunisian-born Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, was already in police custody. The delivery driver’s flat, just north of the main train station, in Nice has also been searched.
The refrigerated truck that Bouhlel used to mow down his victims on a two-kilometre stretch of the Promenade des Anglais as a fireworks display ended, just after 22:30 on Thursday night, was the largest and heaviest that the rental company in St Laurent du Var had on its books, the company said.
Among the dead were Fatima Charrihi, whose son said she was the first to be killed, the deputy head of the Nice border police, Jean-Marc Leclerc, and two American tourists, Sean Copeland and his 11 year-old son, Brodie. In all, ten children were among the dead with 202 injured. Some 52 people remain in critical condition in local hospitals.
President François Hollande, who said that attacks in Syria and Iraq would be increased after the outrage, was booed by crowds when he visited Nice on Friday amidst widespread anger that the French authorities had not done enough to ensure security during France’s national holiday celebrations.

Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch is to host the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco on February 27, the third time he has hosted the Awards. The ’Sherlock’ star previously led the 2014 Awards in Kuala Lumpur and the 2015 ceremony in Shanghai.
His role playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, his performance as Julian Assange in the Wikileaks movie The Fifth Estate and as the Dragon Smaug, in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, have established Cumberbatch as one of the world’s most sought-after performers.
"As an actor, I am asked to play a variety of characters, from legendary detective, a master of the mystic arts or an enigma code-breaking genius. None of those characters though have helped me discover who the winners will be at this year's Laureus Awards," said Cumberbatch.
"All of the nominations are fantastic and, along with a stunning Monaco location, home of the Formula One Grand Prix, I know it's going to be a very special night. Join us!"
The Laureus World Sports Awards will celebrate sporting success and achievement over the past calendar year.
