French police made a fourth arrest in the investigation into the attack in Nice on Friday, police sources report to the French news agency AFP. According to local media it is probably a relative of the man who was arrested on Friday.

A total of three people have now been arrested who are suspected of having been in contact with the perpetrator. On Thursday evening, a 47-year-old man was arrested for possible involvement. French police arrested a 35-year-old man on Friday, who may have been an accomplice of the perpetrator.

Exactly what role the detained men played in the attack remains to be investigated.

The perpetrator, a 21-year-old Tunisian, attacked people with a knife at a church in the southern coastal city on Thursday morning. Three people lost their lives; one of the victims is said to have been virtually decapitated. According to authorities, the man carried a Quran and shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is the greatest).

The attacker was shot during his arrest and has been hospitalized ever since. He would not have been in France long: he traveled via the Italian island of Lampedusa to Europe earlier this year.
