A French anti-terrorist judge has charged three more men suspected of helping to arm the Islamist radical who crushed 86 people to death in the French city of Nice in July with a truck.
The three, who were among 11 arrested on Monday in Nice and the western city of Nantes, were remanded into custody on Friday, said the source. The other eight have been released.

The victims from 19 different countries were watching a fireworks display on July 14, the Bastille Day public holiday. Over 400 people were injured.

Six people have already been charged so far over alleged links to the 31-year-old killer but investigators have yet to prove that any of them knew what he was planning.

They include an Albanian couple, Artan Henaj and Enkeledja Zace, and a French-Tunisian national, 21-year-old Ramzi Arefa, suspected of providing a pistol to the killer while not necessarily knowing what he was planning.

The three men charged on Friday are linked to varying degrees to these suspects.

According to identification documents found inside the truck, the driver was a 31-year-old male resident of Nice of Tunisian origin. Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack. The three, aged 24, 31 and 36, were charged in relation to a terrorist plot.
