TUNIS / PARIS (Reuters) – The Tunisian suspect in Thursday’s attack in which three people were killed in Nice in southern France has not been listed by Tunisian police as a suspected activist before leaving the country in September, said a judicial official

Brahim Aouissaoui, 21, left Tunisia by boat on September 14 said the official, Mohsen Dali, and arrived in Nice on Wednesday Tunisia opened an investigation into Aouissaoui, who was arrested by French police after attack, said Dali

Aouissaoui is from the village of Sidi Omar Bouhajla near Kairouan, but recently lived in Sfax and the police are questioning his family there, a Tunisian security source said.

Sfax, a major port some 130 km (80 miles) from the small Italian island of Lampedusa, is a major jumping off point for Tunisians looking to make the dangerous and illegal crossing to Europe
