Four men believed to be linked to the attacker are arrested
The Islamic State terror group claimed it carried out the Nice truck attack in statement carried by group's media outlet - Amaq news Agency.
"The person who carried out the operation in Nice, France, to run down people was one of the soldiers of Islamic State," Amaq said via its Telegram account.
The statement came as French police arrested four people in Nice early on Saturday in connection with the probe into the Bastille day attack that killed at least 84 people when a truck rammed into crowds in the Riviera city.
French authorities are still trying to determine whether Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, the 31-year old Tunisian driver of the vehicle, had acted alone or with accomplices, and whether his motives were connected to radical Islam.
At least 10 children and teenagers are among the killed, with around 50 other children injured, some of them "hanging between life and death", according to hospital officials.
