Horror On Bastille Day

At least 84 people died and scores more were injured after a gunman at the wheel of a heavy truck plowed into a crowd later on Thursday. People were watching a fireworks display marking the French national day when a 25 ton truck zigzagged along the seafront Promenade des Anglais. French President Francois Hollande called the attack a 'terrorist act'. The attacker has been identified as a 31 year old Tunisian born Frenchman. He also opened fire on the crowds before police shot him dead. There has been no claim of responsibility. The attack comes 8 months and a day after IS gunman killed 130 people in Paris.
