The Myanmar Times - - World -

French po­lice ar­rested two men in con­nec­tion with the Bastille Day mas­sacre in Nice which left 84 peo­ple dead, a source said yes­ter­day. “They were placed in cus­tody while in­ves­ti­ga­tors seek to de­ter­mine if the Tu­nisian (at­tacker) Mo­hamed La­houaiej Bouh­lel had lo­gis­ti­cal sup­port,” said the source. Prosecutors be­lieve Mr Bouh­lel had long plot­ted the at­tack in which he ploughed a 19-tonne truck into a crowd of spec­ta­tors en­joy­ing a fire­works dis­play on Nice’s seafront Prom­e­nade Des Anglais, in­jur­ing more than 300 peo­ple.
