- The French government seems to be struggling with the motives of the perpetrator of the attack in Nice. Prime Minister Manuel Valls assumes that the perpetrator had links to radical Islamist circles. The French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve reported that radical Islamic motives can not be confirmed.
,, He is a terrorist who probably had ties in some way with radical Islam, '' Valls said Friday on French radio.,, Yes it is a terrorist act and we will see what the tires are with terrorist organizations. '' Cazeneuve said elsewhere negatively to the question whether he could confirm that the motives of the perpetrators could be linked to jihadism.
The French authorities have informed the 31-year-old Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel identified as the perpetrator of the attack which 84 people lost their lives. He lived in France with a residence permit.
