NICE, France — French authorities on Sunday arrested two more suspects, a man and a woman, potentially linked to the man who rammed a truck into crowds, killing 84 people in this French Riviera city, as investigators sought to determine the man’s path to radicalization and whether he acted alone.

The total of people detained in the attack rose to seven, including the wife of the attacker, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. His wife was reportedly released from custody Sunday morning, according to authorities speaking to local media. If confirmed, that would leave six still being held for questioning.

Bouhlel, 31, was a “soldier of the Islamic State,” the militant group declared Saturday. French authorities said the Tunisian-born Frenchman was inspired by terrorist organizations.

Sixteen victims have still not been identified, and a child was still fighting for its life, French Health Minister Marisol Touraine told reporters Sunday.
