Brahim Aouissaoui, a 21-year-old Tunisian, arrived in France in early October from Italy.
French authorities have identified a suspect in the attack in Nice that killed three people.
It is reported that this is a 21-year-old native of Tunisia, Brahim Aouissaoui.
According to the BBC and Reuters, Aouissaoui arrived by boat on the Italian island of Lampedusa in September. At the end of the quarantine, he was ordered to leave Italy. He is believed to have arrived in France earlier this month.
According to Reuters, Aouissaoui was not listed as a suspected militant in Tunisia and was not in the French security services’ sights.
The attack is considered a terrorist act. France has raised its readiness level to the maximum level.
