He told the journalists who interviewed him recently, right from his hospital bed, that he rented the truck on 22nd October but he was waiting for the Halloween in order to commit the attack because according to him, the streets were likely to become more crowded.
On the attacker’s smartphone, the police discovered thousands of ISIS propaganda videos.
The attacker also said that he initially wanted to place the Islamic State flag on the vehicle, but he gave up in order to not draw attention.
He also asked the investigators whether they could bring a flag of the Islamic State into his hospital room.
