As we reported last night, terror has again stricken France. The Times of Israel reports that 84 people have now died in Nice, France, after a truck struck crowds during the French celebration of Bastille Day:
A French official on Friday said 10 children were among the 84 people killed when a gunman rammed a truck through a crowd of thousands celebrating Bastille Day on the French Riviera on Thursday evening.
The driver was shot dead by police and no one immediately claimed responsibility for the Thursday night attack on France’s national holiday, which rocked a nation still dealing with the aftermath of two attacks in Paris last year that killed a total of 147 people.
French President Francois Hollande on Friday morning said the rampage was “undeniably” a terror attack.
Police sources said the driver had been formally identified as a 31-year-old Franco-Tunisian man whose identity papers were found in the vehicle after the attack.
