TUNIS, July 16 (Reuters) - The Tunisian attacker who killed 84 people in Nice on Thursday had been seeing psychologists for several years before he left Tunisia for France in 2005, his sister said.

"My brother had psychological problems and we have given the police documents showing that he had been seeing psychologists for several years," Rabeb Bouhlel, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel's sister, told Reuters.
