A truck driver who killed dozens of Bastille Day revelers in Nice, France, had been planning the attack for months and had at least five accomplices, the Paris prosecutor said Thursday.
Analysis of Bouhlel's cell phone uncovered photos, texts and phone calls that indicated he started planning last Bastille Day, Molins said, adding that Bouhlel took photos of fireworks on July 14, 2015 an in August 2015, and centered the photos around the crowds watching them.
The suspected accomplices — four men and one woman — were in custody in Nice, Francois Molins told a news conference, and will be charged Thursday on several terrorist counts.
