Nice attacker had 'clear, recent' interest in radical Islam: prosecutor

[PARIS] France truck attacker Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel had a "clear, recent interest in the radical jihadist movement", Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Monday.

Investigations showed the Tunisian had searched on the internet for information on a terror attack in Orlando and the Paris suburb of Magnanville, and had on his computer violent images "linked to radical Islam".
