France- Nice attacker had come from Tunisia just days ago

France- Nice attacker had come from Tunisia just days ago

Paris, Oct 30(UNI) French officials confirmed on Friday that the man who stabbed two women and a man to death in a church in France's Nice had arrived from Tunisia by a migrant boat to Italy's Lampedusa island last month, BBC reported.
Authorities said that the suspect, identified as Brahim Aouissaoui, 21, had been issued an Italian Red Cross document, after he arrived in Italy. He was shot by police and is in a critical condition.
Officials said one of the victims of Thursday's attack at the Notre-Dame basilica in the city of Nice was "virtually beheaded", which President Emmanuel Macron called an "Islamist terrorist attack".
Mr Macron said the they will be increasing the number of soldiers to protect public places - such as churches and schools - from 3,000 to 7,000, even as the country's security alert has been raised to the highest level.
Thursday's stabbings comes days after another attack earlier this month near a school north-west of Paris, where Samuel Paty, a teacher, was beheaded days after showing controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to some of his pupils.
That murder heightened tensions in France and beyond, as Mr Macron defended the right to publish the cartoons and as his government attempted to crack down on radical Islam angered Turkey and other Muslim-majority countries.
The suspect in the Nice attack was heard repeatedly shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) before being shot by police.
A Koran, two telephones and a 30cm (12-inch) knife were found on the attacker, said French chief anti-terrorist prosecutor Jean-François Ricard.
"We also found a bag left by the attacker. Next to this bag were two knives that were not used in the attack," he added.
