The knife-wielding attacker suspected of killing three people at a church in the southern French city of Nice on Thursday is a 21-year-old Tunisian migrant who arrived in Europe just a few weeks ago, sources close to the inquiry said.
Meanwhile, Tunisia has opened an investigation after reports that the suspect in the Nice attack is Tunisian, the spokesman for a specialised counter-militancy court, Mohsen Dali, said.

"The public prosecutor of the anti-terrorism court has opened a forensic investigation into the suspicion that a Tunisian committed a terrorist operation abroad," Dali said.
