77 people killed when truck ploughs into crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France


At least 77 people have been killed tonight in Nice, France, after a truck reportedly drove into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day. Shocking footage from Nice shows bodies lying in the street after the incident earlier this evening.

The driver ended up dead being shot by police, as reported by the French Interior Ministry.

Anti-terror police are on the streets as crowds fled the scene of the crash, in a country still tense after a string of devastating attacks presumably from jihadist terrorists.

Regional newspaper Nice Matin quoted its own reporter at the scene saying there were many injured people and blood on the street.

It published a photograph of a damaged, long-distance delivery truck, which it said was “riddled with bullets” and images of emergency services treating the injured.

Residents are being told to stay indoors as the emergency services work at the scene.
