We don’t believe he did it – Relative of NICE attack suspect refutes media report

Relatives of a potential perpetrator of a deadly attack in France's Nice  chased reporters away from their house in the Tunisian town of Msaken, as some of the relatives have refused to believe  media report about the attack.

According to the Brother of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who is considered to be a perpetrator of a deadly attack in France's Nice, told reporters  on Friday that his family did not believe media reports and ruled out religious grounds of the attack.

"We are depressed, no one from the family believes media reports. Mohamed couldn't have done it. He has not prayed, he is not religious and has not practiced religious rituals. I do not think that he has committed it on religious or extremist grounds," the brother said.

Also, the father of the suspect declined to make any comments to reporters, the correspondent added.

On Thursday night, a truck plowed into a crowd of people watching fireworks during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France, killing at least 84 people and injuring dozens of others, before police killed the driver. Nice resident of Tunisian origin Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, 31, has been named as a potential perpetrator of the attack.
