Second person arrested in France for terrorist attack.

Paris: Security forces made a second arrest in France related to the terrorist attack that left three people dead in the southeastern city of Nice on Thursday, judicial sources confirmed today.

Cited by the press such as the Franceinfo chain and the newspaper Le Figaro, they specified that it is a 47-year-old man arrested last night on suspicion of coming into contact with the assailant, who was arrested a few minutes after killing three people with a knife in the Notre-Dame church, Prensa Latina publishes.

The day before, the French antiterrorist prosecutor, Jean-François Ricard, confirmed that the author of the deadly attack was injured by the police and his vital prognosis remains compromised.

According to the authority, the attacker had a document, from the Italian Red Cross, issued in the name of a Tunisian citizen born in 1999.

The country is on alert, after the prime minister announced in the National Assembly the activation of the level of ‘attack urgency’, while President Emmanuel Macron pointed out in Nice that the anti-terrorist operation Sentinelle, aimed at protecting strategic places, will pass from three thousand to seven thousand troops.

An emergency Defense Council is meeting today to address the threat, in a context marked by recent violent actions attributed to Islamist radicalization, such as the beheading of Professor Samuel Paty, amid the controversy over the second publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.

In broad sectors of the Muslim community, the drawings generate discomfort and are called an insult, but the French government considers them part of freedom of expression and of the press.
