NICE TERROR ATTACK: 80 KILLED, SCORES INJURED

80 people are reported dead and scores injured when an attacker drove a heavy truck into a crowd watching Bastille Day, France’s National Day, fireworks in the southern French city of Nice.

The attacker, who reportedly started by opening fire to the crowd, was shot dead by the police and guns and grenades were found inside the truck.

President Francois Hollande said the attack was of a “terrorist nature” and “”we need to do everything we can to fight against” such attacks.

He extended the state of emergency in the country, which had been declared following the 2015 November attacks in Paris that killed 130 people, by three months.
