Nice attacker sent text message about weapons supply

“The Tunisian delivery driver who killed 84 people when he drove a truck into a crowd watching Bastille Day fireworks in Nice on Thursday sent a text message just before the attack about his supply of weapons.

Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, 31, wrote of his ‘satisfaction at having obtained a 7.65mm pistol’ and discussed the supply of other weapons, a police source confirmed to the news agency AFP. A pistol, two replica assault rifles and a dummy grenade were found in the truck.

It also emerged that Lahouaiej-Bouhlel took pictures of himself at the wheel of the truck before the attack and shared them by text message. More than 200 investigators are working on identifying the recipients of the messages.”
