Two new arrests in France’s truck massacre case

Published: Updated:

French police on Sunday arrested a man and a woman with ties to the man behind a truck ramming attack claimed by ISIS, a judicial source said.

Five other people are already in custody, including the estranged wife of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a Tunisian with no apparent links to extremism who is said to have been radicalized very quickly.

Bouhlel was shot dead by police after he rammed a truck through a crowd celebrating France’s Bastille Day in the resort city of Nice, leaving 84 dead and about 300 more injured.
