Gee, you mean he isn't just a mentally ill lone wolf? Who would have thunk?
NICE, France — The Paris prosecutor’s office says that five people are in custody following the deadly truck attack in the French resort city of Nice.
The office released no additional information about the arrests; it was unclear who was in custody or why. Messages seeking further details were not returned.
Eighty-four people were killed and 200 more wounded when Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel slammed his vehicle into a throng of fireworks spectators on Nice’s seaside boulevard.
The identities of most of those brought into custody were not clear. But neighbors in the Nice neighborhood where the Bouhlel used to live told The Associated Press his estranged wife had been taken away by police on Friday.
Police were seen struggling with a second man immediately after the attack, near the truck. That man, 3 others and Bouhlel's wife were all taken into custody.

Four men believed to be linked to truck terrorist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel have been arrested by anti-terror police during raids in Nice.
A suspect with his head covered by a towel was held by French police as part of coordinated raids as part of the investigation into the Bastille Day atrocity that left 84 dead and hundreds injured. Three men were detained on Saturday morning along with a fourth who was held on Friday night. Bouhlel's estranged wife Hajer Khalfallah was being question by anti terror experts last night.
Here's video of police from last night, first of them shooting at the truck, then grappling with man near the back of the truck and dragging him away.
