What We Know About Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, the Nice Attacker

Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel
The driver who last night ploughed a 19-tonne white Renault lorry through Bastille Day crowds in Nice has been named as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. The 31 year old was born in Tunisia but had French citizenship, living in Nice for a number of years and working as a delivery driver. He had three children, and is said to have been depressed following the breakdown of his marriage with their mother two years ago. Although he was not on the terrorism watch-list, he was known to police having had previous convictions for armed theft, conjugal violence and threatening behaviour. His most recent appearance in court was in March, where he was found guilty of violent conduct following a pub brawl in January. According to French television station BFM TV, he was also on probation having recently fallen asleep at the wheel and crashing into four vehicles on a highway, it is claimed. Pictures have emerged of the run-down flat he was living in, which was raided by police just hours after he carried out his deadly attack. Lahouaiej Bouhlel had left a number of identifying items in the cab of the truck, including an ID card, mobile phone and bank card,
