Chilling last messages from lorry killer in Nice

He sent the messages from the cab of the lorry

The Bastille Day killer sent chilling text messages just minutes before the deadly attack in Nice, according to French TV reports.

Moments before Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel ploughed a truck into a crowd and killed 84 people, he sent messages detailing his plans.

One read: "Bring more weapons. Bringing in 5," according to judicial sources quoted by French TV.

An earlier text read: "It's good. I have the equipment."
