Atleast 75 people have been killed and over 100 injured in Nice, France after a gun man driving a lorry started shooting into the crowd of people celebrating the Bastille Day (French Independence day) national holiday at the Promenade des Anglais seaside walk in the centre of town. An eye witness said he got out of the truck and started shooting at people, got back into the truck and carelessly drove into the crowd killing more people.
Another eyewitness said:
I was enjoying the Bastille Day fireworks just like thousands of other people at the promenade in Nice. I was just walking back after the fireworks had finished. I looked towards the truck and I thought it was a bit odd, because the roads were shut down and there were hundreds perhaps thousands of people walking along. But then from the direction of the truck, I started hearing screaming and then people started running. And so I joined all those people in running away from there.
The driver drove for over 2km plowing into people in his way.
The driver was eventually killed by the Police squad and when the truck was searched, it was found to be loaded with guns and grenades.
However, French anti terror authorities are currently investigating the incident.
