Terrorist truck attack at Nice in France

In France, death toll has increased to 84 in the terror attack where  a lorry ploughed through a crowd during Bastille Day celebrations in the southern city of Nice. Many children are among those who died in the attack. Several dozen people were reported dead after a truck plowed through crowds celebrating the country’s independence day. The government identified the attacker as a 31-year-old native of Tunisia, extended a national state of emergency and absorbed the shock of a fourth major terrorist attack in 19 months. That man drove truck into crowds of people celebrating France’s national day in Nice, killing at least 84 people.
