Nice, France terror attack kills at least 84

France declares Friday the nation will observe three days of mourning after a terror attack that killed at least 84 people.

French President Francois Hollande says Thursday night an armed gunman fired into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day in the Riviera city of Nice before driving a large truck two kilometers (1.24 miles) through the crowd.

“We cannot deny that it was a terror attack,” Hollande says. He adds for the attack to happen on Bastille Day, when France celebrates its post-French Revolution republic, has particular significance.

He says the day is a “symbol of liberty,” and that “human rights are denied by fanatics and France is quite clearly their target.” European Union President Donald Tusk echoes Hollande’s feelings on Twitter:

Nice Regional President says investigations are now being focused on discovering if the attacker had any accomplices.

“Attacks aren’t prepared alone. Attacks are prepared with accomplices,” Estrosi says. “There is a chain of complicity. I expect it to be unveiled, discovered and kept up to date.”

No far no organization has claimed responsibility for the attack.
