Terror Attack In France, Many Killed & Injured

Thursday night, a large truck of around 25-tonne, hit a huge gathering of people celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, a picturesque city located in the southern province of France. It is an undeniable terror attack that struck the country again.

Bastille Day is a national and the country’s biggest holiday which commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in Paris during the 1789 French revolution. Lots of people were out on the streets celebrating the occasion.

The city of Nice in French Riviera was bathing with colorful fireworks and celebratory spirits when the terror attack took place. The driver of the truck first mowed into the large crowd and then started firing at innocent people before the Police officials shot him down. According to Police sources, the perpetrator was a 31-year-old Frenchman of Tunisian origin.

The heinous terror attack claimed 80 lives while injuring thousands. French President Francois Hollande declared it a terror attack and will fly to Nice later today to take stock of the situation. Sources added that the attack might have been carried out by Jehadi terrorists or Pro-ISIS groups. Last year in November too, a ghastly terror attack was carried out in Paris – the responsibility of the same was later claimed by the ISIS terror outfit.

Recalling the horror, an eyewitness said that he saw the truck driver began firing on unarmed civilians without any reason – showing no mercy on even children. One more suspect was there in the truck but he is still at large. “Bodies and blood were everywhere”, stated another eyewitness who was present at the scene.
