77 people feared dead in Bastille Day attack in Nice

At least 77 people have been killed and more than 50 injured after a truck mowed down crowds for more than a mile before the driver got out and sprayed crowds with bullets in a terror attack during the Bastille Day celebrations in the French city of Nice, the Daily Mail reports.

Identity documents belonging to a 31-year-old French Tunisian were found in the truck according to security sources. The source said: ‘The identification of the truck driver is still underway.’ The recovered documents indicate the man is a resident of Nice.

The truck driver was said to have shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ — God is greatest — before being shot dead by police. Pro-ISIS groups have been celebrating the attack but as yet the terror group has not officially claimed responsibility.
