Paris [France], October 31 (ANI/Sputnik): French Police has arrested a third suspect believed to be connected to a man who killed three people with a knife at a church in the southern French city of Nice, media said Saturday.
LCI news channel cited a judicial source as saying that the 33-year-old was the cousin of a man arrested earlier. The third suspect was detained at the home of the latter on Friday evening.
Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said a man wielding a knife attacked people who visited the Notre-Dame basilica on Thursday.
The attacker carried the documents of a 21-year-old Tunisian who came to France through Italy earlier in October. He repeatedly shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is great) during the attack. An anti-terror probe is underway. (ANI/Sputnik)
