The father of Tunisian gunman Seifeddine Rezgui last night claimed extremists had ‘ruined his son’s brain’.
As details continued to emerge of the killer’s background, Hakim Rezgui said: ‘These people ruined my son’s brain with horrid thoughts and ideas, they broke him.
‘People keep asking me for information and I don’t know what to tell them, I was completely taken aback by the news of what my son had done. I had just got back from work at 11.30am, I work on the railway lines.
‘I went to sleep as it’s Ramadan and I was fasting, then at 4pm the police came to my house and said they needed me to come with them.
