Who is Mohammed Lahouaiej Bouhlel the Nice, France truck attacker?


French security officials have identified the driver of the truck as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Tunisian who was living in Nice. Bouhlel was shot dead by police after carrying out the attack and identified using a fingerprint check and personal documents found in the truck.

A freelance truck driver, Bouhlel received a 10-year residency permit allowing him to live in France after he married a French woman, the security officials said. He had a history of domestic violence and was separated from his wife, one of the officials said.

Bouhlel rented the vehicle used in the attack near Nice on Monday, according to the security officials and an official at the Via Location rental outlet.
