The terrorist who beheaded a woman and killed two others near a church in Nice, France has been revealed to be a Tunisian boat migrant who arrived on the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa last month.
The attack followed the beheading of Samuel Paty earlier this month, a school teacher who was targeted as part of a revenge attack for showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to pupils in a class about free speech.
It’s now confirmed that the jihadist in Nice, who yelled “Allahu Akbar” during the attack, arrived in Europe as a boat migrant.
“He entered France from Italy – travelling through the southern Italian city of Bari on 9 October – after reaching the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa on 20 September,” reports Sky News.
“He was carrying an Italian Red Cross identity document, and a bag containing two unused knives was found.”
Other sources name the terrorist as 21-year-old Brahim A., saying he was rescued by an Italian rescue boat on September 20 and placed in quarantine due to COVID.
The Tunisian had apparently been subject to an expulsion order by Italian authorities but was able to travel to France via Bari.
This is at least the fourth time that migrants arriving in France as “refugees” have gone on to commit terrorism.
The Chechen teen who beheaded school teacher Samuel Paty earlier this month had been granted a 10-year residency in France as a refugee in March.
The majority of the Paris massacre terrorists exploited the refugee wave to enter Europe.
The three terrorists who went on a knife rampage in Lyon back in April were also Sudanese refugees.
