BREAKING NEWS: AT LEAST 80 DEAD IN ATTACK IN FRANCE AS TRUCK DRIVER SHOOTS AND PLOW PEOPLE WITH HIS TRUCK.


At least 80 have been killed and over 100 injured in fresh attack in Nice, France... Though the story is still developing but reports and eyewitnesses said a gunman driving a truck started shooting into the crowd of people celebrating the Bastille Day (French Independence Day). An eye witness said he got out of the truck and started shooting at people, got back into the truck and plowed into the crowd killing several other people.



The truck on Thursday night rammed into the crowd on the Promenade des Anglais seaside walk in the centre of town. At least 100 were wounded in the attack.

Another eyewitness said:

     "I was enjoying the Bastille Day fireworks just like thousands of other people at the promenade in Nice," he said. "I was 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. Eyewitnesses said he drove 30 to 40 miles per hour into the crowd.

The driver was eventually killed by the Police squad. The truck was said to loaded with arms and grenades.


The death toll was initially 73...

French anti terror investigators are currently investigating the incident.
