A French prosecutor said that the driver of the truck that ran through a crowd killing at least 84 people in Nice has been identified as Tunisian national Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel.
He was a father with a family, Molins said. He had been known to local law enforcement, but was unknown to French intelligence agencies.
The man was a resident of Nice, prosecutor Francois Molins said during a press conference.
Molins warned that the investigation was still in its beginning phases. He said that the man had been identified by a driver's licence and bank card left in the truck, alongside a mobile telephone and multiple weapons.
