Nice attack: At least 80 dead as lorry rams into crowd

At least 80 killed after attacker drives lorry into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in southern city of Nice.



At least 80 people were killed and another 100 injured in the southern French city of Nice after an attacker drove a lorry into a crowd celebrating the Bastille Day national holiday, authorities said.

The attacker behind the wheel on Thursday drove at high speed along the famed Promenade des Anglais seafront, hitting the mass of spectators who had been watching a fireworks display.

Police later shot and killed the driver, officials said.

France's Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said 80 people were killed, including children, and 18 were in critical condition.

Identity papers belonging to a 31-year-old French-Tunisian were found inside the truck, a police source told the AFP news agency on Friday.

The identification of the truck driver is still under way, said the source. The identity papers indicate the man is a resident of Nice.

The attack struck just as the fireworks display - which was attended by thousands of people - was ending, at around 11:00pm local time (21:00GMT).

Eric Ciottio, the ranking politician of the Alpes-Maritime department that includes Nice, said the lorry rammed into the crowd over a distance of two kilometres.

Ciotti said on BFM TV that police killed the driver "apparently after an exchange of gunfire". He said the truck was loaded with weapons and grenades.
