French church attacker arrived from Tunisia last month

Paris, Oct 30 (TIWN) A Tunisian man who stabbed three people to death inside a church in the French city of Nice, had arrived in Europe on board a migrant boat last month, officials said on Friday.

According to the officials, the 21-year-old suspect identified as Brahim Aouissaoui, who is in critical condition after he was shot by police following the attack on Thursday, had an Italian Red Cross document issued after he arrived on the island of Lampedusa, reports the BBC.

In a statement, chief anti-terrorist prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard said that a Quran, two phones and a 12-inch knife were found in Aouissaoui's possession.

"We also found a bag left by the attacker. Next to this bag were two knives that were not used in the attack," the BBC quoted Ricard as further saying.
