    Local police arrested two more people in connection to the Nice truck attack, a judiciary source said on Sunday.

    A man and a woman were detained early on Sunday in the course of the police investigation into the Nice truck attack, which left at least 84 people dead.

    On July 14, a truck rammed into a crowd of people watching Bastille Day fireworks in the southern French city of Nice. The investigation found that the person behind the attack was 31-year-old resident of Nice of Tunisian origins Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel.

    Earlier, police arrested four people who were close to Bouhlel. According to French news channel iTele citing sources close to the investigation of the Nice terrorist attack, four detainees said that his behavior had changed dramatically prior to the attack — he became unusually aggressive and started referring to Daesh in conversations.

    On Saturday, Daesh has claimed responsibility for the truck attack, according to Al Jazeera TV channel.
