Death toll of Nice, France last night killing rises to 84

Bastille day attack scene paris
Tragedy of international proportion has struck France as they celebrated their biggest holiday last night. Death toll has risen to 84 after a terrorist drove a truck into the crowd and also shot people.
At least 84 people have been killed and more than 50 injured after a 25-tonne lorry mowed down crowds for more than a mile before the driver got out and sprayed fleeing revellers with bullets as terror struck Bastille Day celebrations on the French Riviera.

One eyewitness described seeing 'bodies flying like bowling pins' and 'hearing noises, cries that I will never forget' as the horror unfolded on a busy promenade in the southern city of Nice at around 10.30pm local time last night.
Identity documents belonging to a 31-year-old French Tunisian were later found in the bullet-riddled truck after the gunman at the wheel was shot dead by police marksmen, security sources said.
The gunman is believed to be from Nice and was known to police for minor crimes, but not intelligence services. A suspected accomplice is still on the run.
The source added: 'The identification of the truck driver is still underway.' The recovered papers indicate the man is a resident of Nice.
The truck driver was said to have shouted 'Allahu Akbar' – God is greatest – before being killed. Pro-ISIS groups have been celebrating the attack, orchestrated to coincide with France's most important national holiday, DailyMail reports


A huge cache of guns, grenades and 'larger weapons' were later found inside the lorry, which mounted the pavement at approximately 40mph and steered directly towards hundreds of people watching a fireworks display.

French police riddled the truck with gunfire in an effort to kill the crazed driver of the truck which ran down hundreds of people 

Fireworks were filling the night sky as the drama unfolded, as the crowds enjoyed July 14th, which is always a Bank Holiday in France
