The suspect behind the knife attacks in the French city of Nice is a 21-year-old Tunisian migrant, AFP reports quoting inquiry sources.
Three people were killed and several others wounded in the attack at the Notre-Dame church on Thursday morning.
Witnesses said the attacker was allegedly shouting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”), as he carried out the attack.
According to the police on site, one of the victims, a woman, was decapitated by the attacker.
Two other attacks took place on Thursday, one in France and one in Saudi Arabia.
